Free Comic Book Day is a special day, on Saturday the 3rd of May, in which retailers give away free comics in order to promote comic book reading. Most stores participate on the day and often hold events and sales to coincide with the giving of free comics. It is a fun day and you get to meet other passionate readers and like-minded people.
