May 5th, 2012 is Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) and this Saturday is the day you can find a participating comic book dealer and get some comic swag on! From what I can tell, there are specific editions from the comic companies that produce content for this day.

Keep in mind, that only the comic titles that have the FCBD logo on them are the freebies for swag!

Companies I know for sure that are participating are DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Vertigo, Archaia Entertainment, Image Comics, Dark Horse, & IDW.

Suggestions from various sources out and about the webs suggest, that for the best possible results on this day for free comics, you should

  • Arrive as early as you can for the best possible selection in the store!
  • Some stores will be hosting autograph sessions with notable comic personalities. (Call and find out!)
  • CALL your favorite local comic book store early (like today!) and find out if they are participating.

This also might help get ahold of some freebies: FCBD Store Locator.

(Now if we can convince Joss Whedon to go nuts with his titles for FCBD, well, we’d be in heaven!)

Our local store does an awesome job for FCBD – – He has the actor who played Harry Kim on STNG coming to the shop.
In fact the actor is joining a load of people to see the avengers movie on Friday night.

I think its a great way to help make people more aware of comic shops. I wish that comics were not so expensive or I would add more to my collection.
