Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) celebrates the independent comic book specialty shop on the first Saturday in May. Participating comic book shops across the country give away FREE* comic books to anyone who comes into their store. Each shop is unique, with a style and personality all its own.
In 2020, COVID-19 prevented FCBD from being celebrated at its normal time. Now, the beloved event has been rescheduled as Free Comic Book Summer!
From July 15 to September 9, comic shops across the country will offer FREE COMIC BOOKS. The number of titles offered will vary from shop to shop.
FCBD 2020 will feature titles from publishers such as Marvel Comics, Image Comics, BOOM! Studios, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, Dynamite Entertainment, DC, and more! The free comics are designed to appeal to a broad range of interests, from superhero stories, to TV and movie tie-ins, sci-fi adventures, all-ages tales, and more.
