Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is the biggest event in the comic book industry—a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and of course here in Orlando, give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops!

Major publishers such as DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, Dynamite Entertainment, and Image Comics, along with a slew of independent publishers, put out free comics for fans to enjoy at the more than 2,300 local comic shops throughout the country that participate in Free Comic Book Day.


Free Comic Book Day takes place this year on Saturday, May 4, 2024, offering a diverse range of titles available: from superheroes, to popular film and television shows, to beloved video games, and all-ages tales. This year’s selection of comics including beloved franchises such as Pokemon, Doctor Who, SpongeBob, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Riverdale, Overwatch and Star Wars.
