— a single day 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, with no purchase required and no strings attached.
Free Comic Book Day is a great event for the whole community. The variety of stories that are told in modern comics today ensure that readers of all ages — children, teens, and adults – can find something appropriate that will stir their imaginations.
Celebrating its eighteenth year, Free Comic Book Day has proven an annual success, introducing new readers to the wonders of comics the first Saturday of May every year. Even if you have never picked up a comic book, we want welcome everyone into Squiggy's on May 2nd, because there are so many amazing things to discover through comics, and we can’t wait to share them.
