Free Comic Book Day isn’t just about free comics. Oh yes, there are plenty of free books to be had, but the day is really about celebrating the medium. Visiting a local comic book shop and interacting with other fans. Introducing new readers to the medium and characters that we love. Thanking your favorite retailer for everything they do for us by buying some comics when you pick up your free ones.
