Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday, May 5th. Here's what you can get, and where!

Free Comic Book Day is THE BEST. They're comic books. AND THEY'RE FREE.

No, not all comic books. This isn't a "walk into your nearest comic book store and have a free-for-all and take what you want."

But free comic book day is a chance for you to get exclusive comics made specifically for this day, and give you the chance to check out comics you've never tried before.

We all have comics we tend to always buy because we're invested in the story. But there are also comics we want to start but we're like "Do I want to shell out the money? Would I just be starting in the middle of a big story arc? Will I understand what's going on? What if I buy it and hate it?" Well never fear! FREE COMIC BOOK DAY IS HERE! Some of these exclusive free comics are just random one-off stories from series you've been wanting to try that introduce you to the characters, story, and pace of the comic.

It's like a free sample day, but for nerds.

Some free comic books available this year are:

  • Overwatch
  • Riverdale
  • Mighty Morphin Power Rangers
  • DC's Top Secret Gold Book
  • Avengers/Captain America
  • Invader Zim
  • Pokemon
  • Doctor Who
  • Invasion
  • Adventure Time
  • The Legend of Korra
  • James Bond
  • Bob's Burgers

And while Free Comic Book Day is a DAY of free comics, quantities are limited. ESPECIALLY on popular comics (Like Avengers and the DC Top Secret Gold Book. Those are going to go within MINUTES.) So get in line at your local comic book store early for the best Free Comic Book Day haul!

My 2 go-to places are Secret Headquarters on First Ave, and Comic Quest off of Morgan Ave.

Comic Quest opens at 10am, Saturday
Secret Headquarters opens at 11am, Saturday

See ya there!
