Celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2016 with Your Favorite DC...

By DCE Editorial Monday, May 2nd, 2016

Wondering where to spend Free Comic Book Day? Don’t worry! We’re here to help you narrow it down with an interactive map of participating shops and DC talent signings.


Whoever said that nothing in life is free clearly wasn’t a comic book fan. Otherwise, they would know that this Saturday, May 7th is Free Comic Book Day and that comic shops worldwide will be giving away free comics to all the fans who come through their doors. Comics like our SUICIDE SQUAD #1 FCBD SPECIAL EDITION and the all new DC SUPER HERO GIRLS #1 FCBD SPECIAL EDITION, both of which will be available for free that day at participating shops.

But complimentary comics are only the beginning. Many comic shops also host Free Comic Book Day parties and events that sometimes feature DC writers and artists as guests. Curious if any of those shops are in your neighborhood? To help you answer that question, we’ve put together an easy-to-use interactive map, highlighting both the shops that are celebrating Free Comic Book Day as well as many of the ones that are hosting DC talent signings. Please note that some of these signings may require wristbands or preregistration, so check the shop’s website or social media accounts for details before heading down.

Regardless of where you’re spending Free Comic Book Day, if you’d like to share your tweets and photos with your fellow DC fans, use the hashtag #DCFCBD and you just may see them show up below. See you on Saturday!
