As many of you know, this past Saturday was Free Comic Book Day, that beloved geek holiday when we celebrate comic books by giving a whole mess of them away for free. This year, DC Comics had two free books on offer, including the first installment of The New 52: Futures End, our brand new, timeline-shattering weekly series featuring the DCU debut of Terry McGinnis.
So...what are you doing on Free Comic Book Day?
While it may not be officially recognized as a holiday, among comic fans, Free Comic Book Day holds just as much social significance as New Year's Day or Halloween. Free Comic Book Day 2014 is this Saturday, May 3rd. On that day, comic book stores worldwide will welcome thousands of eager fans through their doors with free comics and in-store events geared towards new readers and old alike.
Yesterday, DC ENTERTAINMENT announced THE NEW 52: FUTURES END will be one of their Free Comic Book Day titles for 2014. In addition, TEEN TITANS GO! #1 will be available at participating comic shops across the country for children of all ages.
So get ready for Free Comic Book Day 2014, which takes place the first Saturday of May!
Free Comic Book Day has become a bona fide holiday for comic book fans nationwide and beyond. We recognize this, which is why we provided you with our list of DC Comics talent signings last week. It’s also why we went on Twitter and asked you to send us your FCBD photos and tweets using the #DCFCBD hashtag.
Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday, and to help you lock down your plans, we've compiled a list of DC talent signings. Is there one taking place near you?
If you weren’t able to make it to your local comic shop on FCBD, or if you just prefer to read your comics digitally, you can now download DC’s two highly discussed FCBD offerings: DC COMICS–THE NEW 52 FCBD SPECIAL EDITION and DC NATION FCBD SUPER SAMPLER/SUPERMAN FAMILY ADVENTURES FLIPBOOK. And best of all, the price is exactly the same as it was on FCBD—free!
Free Comic Book Day is only two days away, and to help you prepare for it, we reached out to some of our favorite retailers via Twitter and the Web to see if they had any helpful tips. Whether you’re new to FCBD or a seasoned pro, we hope you’ll find them helpful!
