Free Comic Book Day

When it comes to comics, there's something for everyone! Check out some of the award-winning graphic novels and comics featured in our collection in our recommended lists below (Related Links), along with a couple of videos from local comic creators for you to watch anytime.

Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is an annual event when participating comic book shops and libraries give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes in. The goal of FCBD is to get comic books in the hands of people who might not otherwise read comics—and to connect comic book fans with more to read!

FCBD lands on Sat May 7 in 2022. Visit any BPL branch and pick up a FREE comic (one per person) and an activity sheet to take home.
