Free Comic Book Day is observed next on Saturday, May 1. It has been observed the first Saturday in May since 2001.

Free Comic Book Day is an annual promotional effort by the North American comic book industry to help bring new readers into independent comic book stores.

Retailer Joe Field of Flying Colors Comics in Concord, California, brainstormed the event in his “Big Picture” column in the August 2001 issue of Comics and Games Retailer magazine. Free Comic Book Day started in 2002 and is coordinated by the industry’s single large distributor, Diamond Comic Distributors. The event has spread to countries in Asia, Europe, and Australia.
