Free Comic Book Day
May 7, 2016
As the name implies, Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops. Free Comic Book Day is held the first Saturday in May each year.
One of the goals of Free Comic Book Day is to reach out to individuals unfamiliar with how great a comic book shop can be to visit. Every year those behind Free Comic Book Day launch a massive promotional campaign that heralds the event and spreads the good word of comics to potential readers everywhere.
