POW! ZAP! FREE! Calling all comic book enthusiasts! This year, FREE Comic Book Day is celebrating more than 20 years of the annual giveaway. The colorful day is the biggest event in the comic book industry — a single day when comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to all.
The annual event takes place on the first Saturday in May, which, for 2022, falls on Saturday, May 7.
It’s the perfect opportunity for young ones to ignite a love for comic books or for true collectors to celebrate their lifelong passion and add to their growing collection.
Major publishers, such as 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 book for everyone — from superheroes to popular film and television shows, as well as video games and all-ages tales.
Many shops also offer other activities or promos to coincide with the day.
