May 7, 2016 – Free Comic Book Day

FCBD 2015The first Saturday of May brings Free Comic Book Day.    A day to go out and support local shops.  Each shop determines how to distribute the free comics; typically a limit of 3 per person is a normal approach.  The comics are generally samples and introductions; for the past few years only a couple publishers have submitted complete stories (albeit short form).  Stop in and support your local shops with a purchase while you’re there.

Find a participating comic book shop in your area here.

Some highlights from the comics announced include Marvel Civil War II Edition; which looks to pique interest of movie goers and expose them to the comic book universe of Marvel.FCBD Civil WarDC is thinking pretty much the same thing to promote the Suicide Squad with a likely tie in to the upcoming movie.FCBD Suicide Squad.jpgOther books include: Dr Who, Legend of Korra, Assassins Creed, Street Fighter, Sonic, Pokemon to name a few.  Enough variety for most.  And I almost forgot: Grumpy Cat has a FCBD edition.fcbd grumpy cat.jpgFor the Las Vegas area here are some shops set to participate:

    I wasn’t able to find any e-comic versions of these editions online, just previews. (I have not checked Xcomic). The publishers would have to make the decision to have e-comic versions with or without panel animation.
    But I guess the point of the event is to get people to their local comic book store. And make some other purchases while they are there.
