|Location:||Across North America|
|Address:||- Toronto, ON|
On the first Saturday in May across North America comic fans can rejoice because it is Free Comic Book Day! At participating location across the city, fan-favourite comic such as Archie, Bob’s Burgers, Serenity, Doctor Who, Suicide Squad, Captain America and more are all free to diehard collectors and interested readers alike.
Free Comic Book Day is administered by a panel representing all parts of the comic book industry: retailers, publishers, suppliers, and Diamond Comic Distributors. Each year, publishers apply to provide comic books at cost to retailers, who in turn give them away for free. Diamond handles marketing and logistics for the event, shipping comics to shops and handling marketing and PR for the event.
Since 2002 Free Comic Book Day has seen thousands of shops across North America give away millions of free comics.
