It’s Christmas in May for Comic Book Lovers

Holy Hallelujah, Batman! It’s Free Comic Book Day on May 3rd!

Every year, on the first weekend in May, comic book stores celebrate the genre by giving customers free copies of favorite comic books.

How can you prepare to meet up with Wonder Woman and Spiderman?

1. Find a participating comic book shop near you. You can use the FCBD store locator.

2. Contact your local store to find out what their policies are and what they’re giving away.

3. Get there early. As with anything free, the earliest Super Power fans get the Super Comics.

4. Visit the Free Comic Book Day Facebook page. You knew there had to be one, right? They have daily giveaways leading up to the main event.

5. Have fun and take pictures. You can win more prizes when you post your pics with the hashtag #FCBD2014 or #FCBD. Check out the Photo Sharing Contest rules.

One final tip from me:

Practice all the Holy ____ phrases Robin says to Batman. Holy Ravioli, Batman! There’s an entire list of them on Wikipedia!

    A store in our small city participated in Free Comic Day but we were out of town (and kind of in the middle of nowhere, and busy with family), so we missed it. Hopefully next year!


  2. Awe-some! If someone hasn’t written a guide/book on when all of the free comic book, donut, pancake days, etc are throughout the year…they should!! 😉
