Celebrate the biggest Free Comic Book Day yet offering 60 comics

Now in its 13th year, Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) has become a yearly tradition for comic book stores to engage current and potential new readers with a stack of free comics to try out. The entire comic book industry works together for this annual event to raise awareness of comics and local comic book shops. On Saturday May 3, 2014, millions of comic books that have been published specifically for Free Comic Book Day will be handed out at almost 2,000 comic shops all around the world.

The titles being given away represent a variety of genres and come from most of the major comic book publishers. Several shops are also hosting special events in conjunction with the day like costume contests, meet and greet with comic book creators, door prizes and more.

This year marks the largest Free Comic Book Day ever . Comic shop retailers on the FCBD Committee have selected 60 comics for readers to choose from including some new comic book characters and fan-favorites. There are superheroes, action-adventure and more, there will be comic books for all-ages to choose from.

“Once again, comic book publishers are giving fans what they want: great stories with recognizable characters all inside a free comic book!” said Dan Manser, FCBD spokesperson. “This year’s Gold Sponsors are comprised of the top publishers in the comics industry and we’re sure that fans will be pleased with the line-up. We look forward to seeing all the fans during Free Comic Book Day at participating comic shops across the nation and worldwide.”
