Adults and kids alike participate in Free Comic Book Day the 1st Saturday in May.

Comic book heroes come in all shapes and sizes. So do their fans. A new fan is born every day and probably more so on Free Comic Book Day when retailers take the opportunity to lure us back into where our heroes began: in the ink, the art, and the stories.

HISTORY

In 2001 comic book retailer Joe Field of Flying Colors Comics in Concord, California noticed how the success of movies based on comic books. As a way to expose all those moviegoers to the joys of the comic books that inspired the big screen characters, Field created Free Comic Book Day the opening weekend of Spider-Man in 2002. Thanks to Field, there is a whole new generation of comic book fans that might never have existed if it weren’t for him.
