Free Comic Book Day May 4

Save the Date!  Free Comic Book Day is coming up Saturday, May 4, 2013.

Each year, participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely *FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores.  Since its inception, Free Comic Book Day has given out over 27 million free comics to nearly 8 million people. This year alone, over 4.6 million comic books will be given away! 

The goal of Free Comic Book Day is to promote the comic book medium to new customers young and old and celebrate independent comic book retailers and their stores.  Comics are exciting and a great tool for introducing young children to the world of reading.

This year's list of free comics includes mainstream titles such as: The Walking Dead, SpongeBob, Sesame Street, Superman, GRIMM, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Star Wars, The Smurfs, The Simpsons, Archie, and the launching of a major Marvel Comics’ Event called Infinity!
