Free Comic Book Day

I am going to publish this post early because tomorrow, May 6, 2016 is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY!

The first Saturday in May every year since 2002 is Free Comic Book Day!

Basically, stores agree to give you a free  book for entering their store that day or weekend. The different stores may limit how many comics each person may receive.

As a regular reader of Becoming 7, you have probably noticed that I have a weekly special day post and a weekly book post. I am a big believer of guiding children to a love of reading. Free books are a great way to show them that books are fun!

There are going to be a lot of good ones this year! There are 50 titles this year. A few I am going to try to capture are:

Dr Who

Strawberry Shortcake

To find your location visit the Free Comic Book Day store locator.

In past years I have lived in cities with multiple locations. That was fun because I could try to collect all the editions I was interested in.

There are some MAJOR Sponsors like ComicCon, Marvel, Archie, Lego, DC and many more.

Which books are you going to try and get?
