National Free Comic Book Day Hits Saturday, May 7th

Jay Cochran - May 02, 2011
On May 7th, over two thousand comic book shops across North America and around the world will share the magic of comic books with their communities when they give out over 2.7 million comic books—free of charge—during Free Comic Book Day, which marks its tenth anniversary this year.

“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’s literally a free comic book available for everyone’s taste: from Spider-Man, Green Lantern, and Avatar: The Last Airbender to Kung Fu Panda, Archie Comics, and Star Wars…there’s even a comic book on Discovery Channel’s Deadliest Sharks.

Comic book heavyweights Dark Horse Comics, DC Comics, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, and Marvel Comics are among the many publishers creating these special titles for Free Comic Book Day 2011, which is celebrating its tenth anniversary in 2011. The free books appeal to a broad range of tastes, from exciting super-hero adventures to cool kid’s comics and even cutting-edge graphic fiction for adults.

“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," said FCBD spokesperson Leslie Jackson. “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.”

Along with free reading material, comic book shops will feature events during the day including creator signings, appearances of favorite super-hero or comic book characters and special sales.

Customers can check out the full list of available titles on the Free Comic Book Day website,, and use the FCBD Store Locator to find a participating comic book shop in their area.

If you work in the wrestling business... whatever you do, don't drink and drive in Tampa, lol. In the last two years, this has to be the 10th or 47th arrest... I mean, the Tampa po-po is all about busting wrestling DUIs, lol.
