May 2, the day after X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE hits theaters, thousands of comic book retailers across North America and around the world will share the magic of comics with their customers when they give out over two million comic books free of charge during Free Comic Book Day.
Comic book heavyweights Dark Horse Comics, DC Comics, Image Comics, and Marvel Comics are among the many publishers creating special titles for this year's Free Comic Book Day, the eighth year for the annual event. The free books appeal to a broad range of tastes, from exciting super-hero adventures for all ages to cutting-edge graphic fiction for everyone.
Along with free reading material, comic book stores will also have creator signings and encourage customers to dress up as their favorite super hero or comic book character while attending the event. Fans can check out the list of available titles on the newly launched Free Comic Book Day site.
