There's this cool day on the first Saturday in May called, "Free Comic Book Day"!
What is Free comic Book Day?
It's exactly what it sounds like. A day where you can get FREE comic books! "Free Comic Book Day is an annual event founded on the belief that for every person out there, there’s a comic book that they’ll love." - (freecomicbookday.com) I totally agree with this! If you like to read, look at cool pictures, love TV shows, watch movies or live life then chances are there's a comic book for you!

I received a few others that they were giving away for free and I purchased a couple for a great deal. Each comic shop orders their own comics so the selection will vary from shop to shop. As you see many publishers participate in FCBD such as DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Disney Comics, Archie Comics and a ton more.
This year they released a new comic book for Disney Princess. I grew up in the 90's and "The Little Mermaid" was one of my favorite movies so of course I immediately feel in love with the Little Mermaid comic book as soon as I saw it! It's so darn cute! The story and the art is adorable. I can't wait to make something out of this one. Stay tuned for that...
You can also watch a funny video of me showing my comic haul from Free Comic Book Day while wearing my Hulk hands that I got for my Marvel themed birthday.
Why you should go next year!
I haven't always loved comics but I've always loved many shows and movies that are based of comic books.
- Does The Walking Dead or Avengers Infinity War ring a bell? If you don't realize it (which I'm sure you do) many of the most popular movies and tv shows are based of comic books. So get in the know and find out how these stories began or how they might end.
- Comics have a variety of stories that you can relate too or they can take you to a whole new world you never imagined. They also have some pretty cool art that you can enjoy.
- You can support a local business and get great deals! Help a shop out and purchase a couple of comics while you're there grabbing your freebies. Many shops offer amazing deals so it's a good time to grab those comics you always thought about reading.
- If you're not sure if you'll be into comics, what's a better way to try out a comic book other than "Free Comic Book Day"? C'mon... It's FREE!!! You can find a comic book shop near you that's will be participating in FCBD here: https://www.freecomicbookday.com/StoreLocator .
