By DCE Editorial Tuesday, April 24th, 2018

Free Comic Book Day is nearly upon us, and DC is celebrating with free comics and dozens of writer and artist signings. Get all the information you need on how you can celebrate the perfect #DCFCBD below. See you on Saturday!

This Saturday, May 5th is Free Comic Book Day, a yearly celebration devoted to spreading the good word about all things comics! If you’re new to Free Comic Book Day (or FCBD, as it’s called for short), you’re in for a treat. All day long, comic shops the world over will be handing out free comic books from a wide variety of publishers… including DC!

This year, get your cape on with FCBD 2018 DC SUPER HERO GIRLS #1, featuring a chapter from the original graphic novel DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: DATE WITH DISASTER! Written and drawn by the dynamic duo of Shea Fontana and Yancey Labat, this kid-friendly comic finds star students Batgirl and Lois Lane investigating a fishy incident at S.T.A.R. Labs.

Find out more about DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: DATE WITH DISASTER by clicking here!

While you're at your local comic shop, and assuming there are any copies left on the shelves, be sure to pick up DC NATION #0 for preludes to some of the biggest DC events of 2018 in BATMAN, JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE and MAN OF STEEL.

Best of all, the free comics are only the beginning! Many comic shops celebrate FCBD by hosting signings by some of your favorite comic creators. This year, DC writers and artists are participating in events across the globe. Wondering if any of them are in your neighborhood? You can find out by using our interactive map below. Please note that all events are subject to change, so we suggest checking the shop’s website or social media account to confirm before heading down.
