(Baltimore, MD) — (April 23, 2019) — On Saturday, May 4, over 2,200 comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world will give away over 5.2 million comic books free of charge on Free Comic Book Day (FCBD). The annual event is one of the most anticipated comic book celebrations of the year, as retailers prepare to welcome curious, first-time comic book readers and seasoned comic book fans into their stores for free comics and exciting events.

“Free Comic book Day is a great event for everyone! It’s an opportunity for newcomers to dive into the world of comics, and for longtime readers to try a new title they may not have picked up otherwise. The wide selection of comics available allows readers of all kinds to explore new and exciting worlds and travel to far off places,” said Free Comic Book Day spokesperson, Ashton Greenwood.

The fifty-one free comic book titles available this year are designed to appeal to a broad range of tastes. This year’s diverse selection includes superhero stories, like Marvel’s Avengers, and Spider-Man/ Venom #1, as well as DC’s Catwoman: Under the Moon and Dear Justice League; popular kids titles such as Minecraft, The Incredibles, Star Wars Adventures, and Pokémon, and TV tie-ins featuring series like Riverdale, Doctor Who, and Stranger Things.

“On May 4th, we encourage fans to use Free Comic Book Day as an opportunity to explore their local comic shop and discover all it has to offer,” said Greenwood. “Our hope is that everyone will walk away with comics they can’t wait to read and share, and then return to their local shop to become a part of the pop-culture community and embark on more adventures through comics!”
