You can see the selection of comics that might be offered at your local shop on the Free Comic Book Day website. In addition, checkout the store locator to see which comic book shop near you is participating:Shops that are kid friendly are indicated with a little “kid friendly” icon.

Read an excerpt from the next installment of the Berrybrook Middle School series, Crush, by Svetlana Chmakova.
My students would love to see the free comic of My Hero Academia, as they’re chomping at the bits for each volume recently purchased at my library.
And who doesn’t love a bit of Spongebob?
See the latest going on at Riverdale and get your superhero fix with an Avenger’s comic. There’s a slew of selection. So this Saturday, go down to your closest comic book shop and get some freebies. Maybe do some shopping too.
