Every comic available this weekend for Free Comic Book Day 2017

5 min read


I love the first week of May. It’s honestly like the nerdiest Christmas ever because a) Star Wars references on days 4,5 of the month and b) your dorky messiah was born on the second day of the month. Or possibly the anti-christ, judging by how holy water burns me whenever I’m on hallowed ground. The first weekend of May is also the day wherein people get their first taste of comics with Free Comic Book Day.

It’s easy to get into it: All you have to do is hit your local comic book shop, choose which printed medium has the pictures on the front which appeal to you the most and you can have it. For free, no questions asked. This year’s selection comes in two flavours: A gold edition of 12 comics and a silver selection of dozens more. I have no idea what that means, but free comics dudes. It’s awesome. here’s what you can expect to find at your retailer this week, to take advantage of Free Comic Book Day, which is offically tomorrow, May 6.

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia’s M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!
