Free Comic Book Day, first Saturday in May, multiple sites

It’s a bird! It’s a plane! It’s FREE Comic Book Day and, this year, they’re celebrating more than 20 years of the annual celebration and giveaway. 

The annual event takes place on the first Saturday in May. This year, that means the action-packed day is on May 4, 2024

FREE Comic Book Day is the biggest event in the comic book industry — a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who comes into their shop. 

It’s the perfect opportunity for young ones to ignite a love for comic books or for true collectors to celebrate their lifelong passion by adding to their growing collection. 

Major publishers are participating, including the following:

  • DC Comics
  • Marvel Comics
  • Dark Horse Comics
  • IDW Publishing
  • BOOM! Studios
  • Dynamite

Entertainment, and Image Comics, along with a slew of independent publishers, put out FREE comics for fans to enjoy at the more than 2,300 local comic shops that participate in the colorful and action-packed day.

The diverse range of titles available each year proves there’s truly a comic book for everyone — from superheroes to popular film and television shows, as well as video games and all-ages tales.
