ORLANDO, Fla. – From horror to action to romance and more, there are a variety of comic books for anyone’s interests.

Free Comic Book Day is returning to its original May date this Saturday after the event was pushed back in 2021 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

On Free Comic Book Day, specialty shops give away books for free to anyone who comes in, according to the event’s website.

“Comic books are an original American art form, created in the early days of the 20th century. They are fun to read, featuring a wide range of diverse story lines that capture the imagination of the readers,” the event’s website reads.

It’s not an event in which all comic book locations participate but for the most part many shops do, and they can have their own policies on how many free products are given away.
