Celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2014 with Your Favorite DC Comics Writers and Artists

Celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2014 with Your Favorite DC...

By DCE Editorial Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

 

So...what are you doing on Free Comic Book Day?

While it may not be officially recognized as a holiday, among comic fans, Free Comic Book Day holds just as much social significance as New Year's Day or Halloween. Free Comic Book Day 2014 is this Saturday, May 3rd. On that day, comic book stores worldwide will welcome thousands of eager fans through their doors with free comics and in-store events geared towards new readers and old alike. Many of these events will feature DC Comics writers and artists, signing copies of their books and often providing sketches for attendees. Perhaps one of these signings is near you? Check out the interactive map above or the state-by-state listing below highlighting some of the Free Comic Book Day events taking place this weekend. Where possible, we've provided signing times as well as links to the shop which is hosting the event, but please call ahead. Occasionally, these events require wristbands or other forms of preregistration, and all of them are subject to change.

As for those free comics, DC is proud to offer two of them this year. The first DC COMICS - THE NEW 52 FUTURES END FCBD SPECIAL EDITION kicks off our newest weekly series and officially introduces Terry McGinnis (AKA Batman Beyond) into DC Universe continuity. While our second offering, TEEN TITANS GO #1 FCBD SPECIAL EDITION, is based on the mega-popular Cartoon Network animated series and is perfect for our younger fans. You can see a small preview of both these comics above, or click here to learn more about them.
