Tips to Make the Most of Free Comic Book Day
- Plan your trip with the FCBD Official Store Locator
- Plan to stand in line! I’ve gone to comic book shops in big cities, and as a result some shops participating in free comic book day near me have had long lines to wait in. Therefore, bringing a friend (or a few!) or family members can give you more freedom to take breaks. You might also want to bring along a lawn chair or snacks and beverages. Typically the wait isn’t long, but some locations may be longer than others depending on how many people are there.
- Arrive early! Because, quantities of free comic books are limited. Some shops may limit to 2-3 comic books per person, and some may offer more. But, there are only so many, so get there before they’re all gone.
- Join in the fun! In other words, don’t fret if you have to wait or miss out. For example, some people dress up as their favorite comic book hero (or villain!) If you do, then be sure to join the fun on social media! Use the hashtag #FCBD21 and @GimmieFreebies and be sure to thank your comic book shop!
