Saturday is Free Comic Book Day!

Saturday is Free Comic Book Day!

Sure, tomorrow is Star Wars Day…that’s true every May Fourth. It comes from, “May the Fourth be with you…” There will be some deals in connection with it:

NBC news article
Star Wars store at Amazon (deals this weekend more than 50% off)

However, you can get an even better deal because it’s the first Saturday in May…it’s Free Comic Book Day!

On FCBD, you can go into participating comic book shops and pick up special editions comics for free. You can see the list of them


Since part of the point of it is to promote local shops, I don’t think they are doing digital comics yet, but perhaps some day.

These comics are intended to get people into reading comics, and so are more accessible than some series. Ask your clerk for help with something kid friendly, if you like.
