Free Comic Book Day is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year on May 7, 2011. Each year, participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who comes into their stores. Be sure to check with your local shop for their participation and rules. Since its inception, Free Comic Book Day has given out over 20 million free comics to nearly 5.5 million people.
The goal of Free Comic Book Day is to promote the comic book medium to new customers young and old and celebrate the independent comic book retailers and their stores.
This year’s list of free comics includes mainstream titles such as: Kung Fu Panda, The Smurfs, Spider-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Green Lantern from this year’s expected blockbuster movie and much more.
