Saturday, May 7 is National Free Comic Book Day!

On May 7th, over two thousand comic book shops across North America and around the world will participate in Free Comic Book Day. Over 2.7 million comic books will be given out free of charge during Free Comic Book Day. This year will be the tenth anniversary of the event.

Some of the free comics this year include Spider-Man, Green Lantern, Avatar, The Last Airbender, Kung Fu Panda, Archie Comics and Star Wars. This year there is even a comic book on Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Sharks.

FCBD spokesperson Leslie Jackson says, “With Free Comic Book Day celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2011, I think it’s fitting that this is one of the strongest line-ups of comics the event has ever enjoyed. There are thirty-seven very different comics to choose from, and that will hopefully mean customers of all ages will walk away from a comic shop on May 7 with a free comic they can’t wait to read.”

Dark Horse Comics, DC Comics, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, and Marvel Comics are among the many publishers giving away comics. Comic book shops will also feature events during the day including creator signings, appearances of favorite super-hero or comic book characters and special sales. You can find out more details on the event’s website at freecomicbookday.com.
