Grab a sweet read during FREE Comic Book Summer 2020!
This annual event usually takes place on the first Saturday in May, but now it’s been rescheduled for a longer period this summer due to delayed openings of stores. The extension allows for the accommodation of social-distancing and store capacity regulations across the country.

FREE Comic Book Summer will feature 45 titles from a variety of publishers. The titles are designed to appeal to a broad range of tastes and run the gamut from superhero stories, TV and movie tie-ins, and sci-fi adventures. The free releases are appropriate for all ages.
Publishers included (but not limited to):
Dark Horse Comics
As a bonus, there will be two educational support titles from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund and Gemstone Publishing.
From July 15 to September 9, comic shops will receive five to six FREE Comic Book Day titles in their weekly shipment. The release of the titles will vary by shop, as retailers are encouraged to distribute the free books as best fits their needs.
One retailer might release one title a day, while another may make all of that week’s titles available at once. Be sure to double-check the event details of your area’s participating stores.
