A surprising and fun discovery from the comic book files -- free comic book day! This event celebrates the independent comic book specialty shops, thousands of which exist in North America alone. Each one is unique in its community, with a style and personality all its own, and each one carries a full line of comics, graphic novels, toys and related products. While not every comic book store participates in this giveaway day, and while the free comics vary from store to store, it's easy to find out the store nearest you and what they have to offer -- just pop your zip code into the handy store locator and find out.
Free Comic Book Day is international -- you can find shops in Canada and all over the world participating. Happy reading!
