Free Comic Book Day 2024 is coming in May, and the selection of comics features an eclectic mix, ranging from Spider-Man to Star Wars to Conan the Barbarian. 

Free Comic Book Day is rapidly approaching, marking a time of year when comic book fans come out in droves to support their local shops. 

For publishers, though, Free Comic Book Day isn’t just a celebration; it’s a starting point. Both Marvel and DC use the day to tease out their biggest upcoming stories. 2024 is no exception, with Marvel kicking off Blood Hunt and teasing X-Men: From the Ashes, while DC will be kickstarting its Absolute Power event.


When is Free Comic Book Day? 

Free Comic Book Day 2024 will be May 4, 2024. The event is traditionally the first Saturday in May after the original FCBD, which was organized in 2002 by comic shop owner Joe Field and Image Comics co-founder Jim Valentino. It was scheduled to coincide with the release of Spider-Man as a means of capitalizing on the positive interest generated by a new wave of successful comic book movies, like X-Men and Blade. 

The original release date stuck as a tradition, with every FCBD taking place the first Saturday in May (the lone exception being 2004’s event, which was shuffled to July to the release of Spider-Man 2).

How to get Free Comic Book Day’s free comics

To get Free Comic Book Day comics, just visit your local comic shop. The availability of comics can vary by location, though. To find out where your local store is, you can check out Comic Shop Locator

FCBD offerings consist of two tiers, Gold and Silver, which refer to the availability of the titles. A Gold title is available at every shop for FCBD, while Silver titles must be specifically ordered by the shop. As such, Silver titles may be less commonly available.

While the comics themselves are free, your local comic shop does still have to order them, albeit at a heavily discounted rate. As such, many fans consider it good etiquette to support your local store by buying a few comics while you’re there for the freebies. Some stores may also have a special sale or event event for FBCD, like creator signings and contests.

By Hannah Klein, Pete Wentz, and Lisa Sterle

From Fall Out Boy’s Pete Wentz, Hannah Klein (Everything’s Fine), and Lisa Sterle (The Modern Witch Tarot) comes the first complete chapter of DYING INSIDE, a graphic novel about a chronically depressed girl who’s tired of fighting for her death.

Today is Ash’s big finale. And by finale, of course, she means exiting the stage permanently. Ash is a sixteen-year-old girl with more angst than Ian Curtis and Elliott Smith combined (her two idols). She’s apathetic and therefore believes death is the easiest route to relief. That doesn’t mean she’ll go out without a bang, though! Nothing is more embarrassing than a lame death. Unfortunately, her meticulous plans – which include the perfect outfit, soundtrack, and method – are all ruined when the beautiful knife she buys off a webstore turns out to be charmed with a protection spell. Now, Ash has to track down the witch who turned her clocking out attempt into the worst gift imaginable: immortality. Turns out, the witch responsible is another sixteen-year-old-girl named (get this) Liv. The two vow to undo the charm together and fight for Ash’s life…well, death.
