Every year on the first Saturday of May, participating comic book stores across America give away free comic books. For Free Comic Book Day 2020, the organizers have decided to postpone due to COVID 19 concerns.
However, Hometown Comics in Greenfield isn’t one to miss out on a tradition loved by so many, they’re hosting a Drive Thru Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 2nd.
From 10 a.m. – 1 p.m. (or until supplies run out), the staff from Hometown Comics will be outside in the parking lot, distributing a bag to each vehicle that will have at least 5 comic books for you to take home to enjoy — 1 per household, please. All you have to do is drive-thru to receive the bag of free comics. Staff will be wearing masks but they will all be smiling and happy to see you.
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.
Hometown Comics is located at 1040 N State St., Greenfield, Indiana.
