Free comics - need I say more?
Attention citizens of Adelaide! Free Comic Book Day is heading to a comic book store near you!
Ever heard of Free Comic Book Day? If you haven't, you really should take the time to find out more.
On the 1st Saturday of May each year, major comic book publishers including DC, Marvel and Dark Horse Comics put out free comics to comic book shops around the world to encourage new and existing fans to come together for a fun, family-friendly day.
Many stores choose to host their own events, including Cosplay competitions and bringing in local artists.
Whether you're an existing comic book fan, trying to encourage your child to read more (of course comics aren't just for children!) or just want to know what all the fuss is about, find your nearest participating comic book store here and get along on the 5th of May for the fun. Popular comics in the past have included Bob's Burgers, Spongebob and Doctor Who.
Who knows what you might discover or the new friends you could make along the way!
