Free Comic Book Day - All Packages

Free Comic Book Day - All Packages



Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is an annual celebration of local, independent comic book stores in  the United States, Canada, and around the world. It originated in 2002 and is typically held on  the first Saturday in May. Each year, publishers apply to provide comic books at cost to participating retailers, who in turn give them away for free to anyone who visits their stores on  Free Comic Book Day. Diamond Comic Distributors handles marketing and logistics, shipping  comics to shops and handling marketing and PR for the annual event. 
While Free Comic Book Day is specifically a celebration of local comic shops, libraries can sign  up to participate and receive comic books and promotional materials to host events in  communities where local comic shops are not easily accessible. You can learn more about their  Free Comic Book Day Library Partner Program at freecomicbookday.com.
