Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May each year - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. *Check with your local shop for their participation and rules.Hate comics? Don't see the point in comics? This event is a great opportunity for you to give them a chance. I used to be a skeptic too, but now, I ♥ comics. I don't read as many comics as I do regular books, but they are always a great break when I need something light. So take a few minutes out of your day, take a reluctant reader with you (or not) and snag some free comics!
