What Is Free Comic Book Day?

Free Comic Book Day happens every year on the first Saturday of May. Participating comic book stores across the US will be giving away special comic books while supplies last. This popular event is geared towards getting new and existing readers into local stores. We attend almost every year and it helps to get the kids excited about reading. While it is a free event, once you are inside the store you won't be able to resist buying a few comics. 

Wondering what is a comic book? Comic books are considered an American Art form. The start of this art form began in the 1930's. Many people around the world collect them. Throughout the years comic books expanded their genres and categories. There is almost something for everyone like Hello Kitty, Superman, The Simpson's or Horror stories.
