comicbookdayEvery year on the first Saturday of May, participating comic book stores across america give away free comic books. There’s a list of comic books that they are giving away available here.

Stop into any participating stores and ask about Free Comic Book Day. Some locations are giving away more than one per person! Find a participating store here.

What a great day to introduce your children to comic books! When I was in 4th grade, my teacher had the largest comic book collection I had ever seen! Kids who didn’t otherwise care to read, REALLY got into reading the comic books in her class.
