Hey all you comic book fans! Don’t forget that Saturday, May 5th, is Free Comic Book Day. Many local shops will be handing out select books for free. Make sure you go pick yours up! Titles from Marvel and DC tend to be more popular than others, so make sure you go early enough to snag the books you want. You may also want to check in with your local shops as many tend to limit the number of free books you can take. If you have a friend or significant other that’s not really into comics, bring them along just in case you need any extra person to snag books for you. You can find the entire list of available comics on Freecomicbookday.com.
There are some fantastic books this year. Here’s a few comics that I’ll be hunting for:
My Hero Academia
I love this anime… I can’t wait to see what this issue will dive into. With season 3 bringing the insanity this year, I’m hoping this issue can live up to that hype.
The Amazing Spider-Man
Looks like we’ll be getting a Spider-Man issue with a tie in to the Infinity story arc. Great characters and a fun cover, what’s not to love?
Shattered Grid has been a fantastic run so far. The story arc is everything a Power Rangers fan could want. With a cover like that, this issue is sure to go fast!
Bob’s Burgers has been a staple of Free Comic Book Day for some time now. The comic has the same level of energy and humor as the show. I’ve loved every other issue from this title in the past and can’t wait to see what will happen next.
A few other major titles to look out for are Transformers, Tank Girl, Riverdale, Doctor Who, Overwatch, Pokemon, Invader Zim, Ghost in the Shell and many more! Just in case you don’t feel like scrolling back to the top, I’ll insert the link to the entire list right here! With so many titles available, there’s sure to be something here for everyone. Many comic shops will run special deals during this event so make sure to take advantage of those offers! Word of advice, pick out the books you really want now so you can aim for those first thing. Remember, some stores will limit how many free books you can have so be smart and plan ahead. Good luck hunting!
