Celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2015 with Your Favorite DC Comics Writers and Artists

Celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2015 with Your Favorite DC...

By DCE Editorial Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

It's the question on every fan's lips the first Saturday in May... Where are you spending Free Comic Book Day? To help you make this very important decision, we've put together a list of events featuring a few of our talented writers and artists. Hope to see you there!

Free Comic Book Day isn’t just about free comics. Oh yes, there are plenty of free books to be had, but the day is really about celebrating the medium. Visiting a local comic book shop and interacting with other fans. Introducing new readers to the medium and characters that we love. Thanking your favorite retailer for everything they do for us by buying some comics when you pick up your free ones. And of course, it’s about meeting some of the comic book writers and artists who have helped bring some of your favorite stories to life.

It’s with this last part in mind that we’ve put together this list and interactive map highlighting some of the Free Comic Book Day Events happening this weekend. We’ve provided signing times where possible, but as always, you should call to confirm. Sometimes these events require wristbands or preregistration, and all of them are subject to change.

Have a happy Free Comic Book Day, and be sure to pick up our two free comics—DC COMICS: DIVERGENCE #1 FCBD SPECIAL EDITION (featuring original short stories that set up this summer’s Batman, Superman and Justice League storylines) and the all-ages friendly TEEN TITANS GO!/SCOOBY-DOO TEAM-UP #1 FCBD SPECIAL EDITION.
