Today is one of our favorite days of the year. It’s Free Comic Book Day! It’s the day when comic book fans and those who might have no comic knowledge at all come together to celebrate the medium. Comic book publishers release some great FCBD-specific titles each year and stores all around the country are going to be giving them away and hosting fun events. If you want to check it all out, you can find your local comic book store over on the FCBD website using their handy store locator.
Now, here are a bunch of free books up for grabs this year and you can see all of them in the FCBD catalog. So the question becomes: how do you choose!? Most comic stores will only let you pick up one or two books to ensure that everyone gets a chance to pick up a free book. So choose wisely. We’ve listed ten of our top picks for the best books of FCBD below.
Keep an eye out for these books!
And don’t forget: FCBD is a great chance to check out some other series available for sale from your local comic book store. A lot of stores will have some pretty great sales going on during FCBD, too. So take the opportunity to support your local businesses if you see something you like!
