Free Comic Book Day 2016

FCBD 2016

Hard to believe Free Comic Book Day has been going for fifteen years! Even harder to believe some people don’t even know about it! Don’t worry friends, Planet Nestor is here to help.

Going back to 2002, Free Comic Book Day is an event where participating Comic Book stores provide free comics!


FCBD Francesco Francavilla

Each year there are a set of special comics selected and depending on the Comic Shop, you may walk away with anywhere between three to six comics.


FCBD Gold Comics

Most Comic Stores also provide entertainment such as face painting and balloons for kids, and also special guests and Cosplay contests.

First Saturday in May!

It is also a good idea to break out the wallet and grab some other comics for sale as well as collectibles to support the Comic Shop you’re attending. Also get the word out, because this is a chance to get new readers big and small to jump into the exciting world of Comic Books!

Here we are at Free Comic Book Day last year:
