Saturday is Free Comic Book Day

National Free Comic Book Day hoping to get more kids into reading

Iguana's Comics and Gifts in grants pass goes all out for the occasion-giving away 25,000 comic books for free.

At All American Cards and Comics, Free Comic Book Day serves as the kick-off for the Youngstown Comic Con, which it will stage July 6-7 at Covelli Centre. This year's edition even coincides with the Star Wars pun "May the fourth be with you". And yes, they'll really be free.

If you're not in Nashville, you can find stores near you with the Free Comic Book Day Store Locator.

Some of the titles available on the day include Doctor Who, Avengers, Stranger Things, Riverdale, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Bob's Burgers, Minecraft and My Hero Academia.




A full list of comic books announced can be found here.

The annual promotional effort by the USA comic book industry started in California in 2002 and aimed to bring new readers into independent comic book stores. If you have children interested in comic books, bring your family to one of those stores today to pick up some books.

A comic book can teach kids about superheroes or fun characters but they can also encourage kids to read.

Joining the conversation were Apotheosis' owner and resident comic book expert, Martin Casas; Jim Mahfood, a St. Louis native who worked on "Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse"; andMaggie Thurston, an indie comic artist who also collaborates with Ink and Drink Comics, a St. Louis-based publishing group that produces anthology graphic novels. If your local shop didn't make the list, check with the store to see if they have any other special events planned.
