Free Comic Book Day 2019

Happy Free Comic Book Day 2019!

Free Comic Book Day is back this weekend, and across the UK many comic shops are again taking part, with free comics for customers on offer, including Funny Pages from 2000AD publisher Rebellion and Doctor Who and Robotech from Titan Comics – full details of these here.

is an annual event founded on the belief that for every person out there, there’s a comic book they’ll love. Every year, on the first Saturday in May, the industry comes together to give away free comics and encourage fans, both old and new, to flock to the best place in the comic book community: local comic shops. These are the hubs of our community, where fans can come together and discover new comics, make lifelong friends, and find a sense of commonality.

Major US publishers such as DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, Dynamite Entertainment and Image Comics – and the UK’s 2000AD publisher, Rebellion and Titan Comics, too – put out free comics for fans to enjoy at the more than 2,300 local comic shops that participate in Free Comic Book Day.

The diverse range of titles available each year proves that there’s truly a book for everyone: from superheroes, to popular film and television shows, to beloved video games, and all-ages tales. Popular series available in the past include Pokemon, Doctor Who, SpongeBob, Riverdale, Overwatch and Star Wars
