What is Free Comic Book Day?
Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who comes into their stores. Note that the free comics are selected titles which are selected by the FCBD Committee, but the retailers are at their own discretion to give what they want. The comics deemed free by the Committee include:
- Archie Comics: Archie Presents: The Mighty Archie Art Players
- BOOM! Studios: Disney/Pixar’s Cars
- Bongo Comics: 2009 Free For All
- Dark Horse Comics: Star Wars: Clone Wars
- DC Comics: Blackest Night #0
- IDW Publishing: Transformers Animated/G.I. Joe
- Image Comics: Savage Dragon #148
- Oni Press: Resurrection #0
- Marvel Comics: The Avengers
- Viz Media: Shonen Jump Presents: Ultimo
More titles can be seen in the upper moving banner on the site.
