Free Comic Book Summer!

Free Comic Book Day is traditionally scheduled to take place the first Saturday in May each year. The annual event had to be postponed this year because of COVID-19 and will now take place throughout July and early September, making it Free Comic Book Summer!

Between July 15th and September 9th, local comic shops will be getting five to six Free Comic Book Day titles each week to give out to customers completely free!

Free Comic Book Summer will feature 45 of the previously announced titles from publishers like Marvel Comics, Image Comics, BOOM! Studios, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, Dynamite Entertainment, DC, and more! The 45 titles are designed to appeal to a broad range of tastes and run the gamut from superhero stories, to TV and movie tie-ins, to sci-fi adventures, all-ages tales, and beyond. There will also be two educational support titles from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and Gemstone Publishing.

A complete listing of all 45 FCBD titles, including the 10 Gold Sponsor and 35 Silver Sponsor comic books, can be viewed online at
