FCBD 09: Millions of Comics to be Given Away Free

fcbd_nodateSaturday, May 2, more than 2,000 comic retailers are offering free comics — ranging from Wolverine to Owly — as part of an initiative to draw new readers. By the end of Free Comic Book Day, millions of comics will have been given away absolutely free.

The FCBD website’s Sponsors Page can locate participating retailers, and Dorian of postmodernbarney.com reviews the titles, giving advance knowledge of what’s available. There’s more info about the comics here.

One thing different about this year’s event is Hugh Jackman’s PSA. Mr. Jackman is the first big name star to endorse Free Comic Book Day through such means. Funny Book Fanatic features two posts thanking Jackman and discussing the significance of the PSA.
