Pow! Crash! Boom!  Getting comic books for free is...super! Free Comic Book Day returns to celebrate its 20th anniversary.

Traditionally, the first Saturday in May each year is set aside as Free Comic Book Day—a day when everyone receives a free special-edition comic book.  This year the event is being held in August "in the hopes that much of the uncertainty and disruption related to COVID-19 will have passed."

Free comic books are limited to the special editions created especially for this promotion. Many local stores allow readers to take several comics; guidelines vary by store 

Free Comic Book Day is a nationwide event, and kids (small and grown) can stop by any participating comic store to receive their free comic(s). Among the titles available in 2021 are: Archie, Investi-Gators, Star Wars: The High Republic, R.L. Stine Just Beyond, Legend of Korra/ Avatar: The Last Airbender, Sonic the Hedgehog, and many others.

Check the Free Comic Book Day website to find the store nearest you.
