Are you ready for free comics? If so, then you’re in luck, because the first Saturday in May is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! If you’re not ready, then get ready. Comic shops around the country are gearing up to have loads of special comics all for free, Saturday, May 5, 2018.
Started in 2002, Free Comic Book Day has been going strong for 16 years and doesn’t show any signs of stopping. Some of this year’s offerings include Avengers, Doctor Who, Overwatch, and Riverdale as some of their Gold Comics.
The Mighty Morphin Power Rangers free comic will have an appearance of Lord Drakkon, an alternate reality evil version of the Green Ranger. Jason David Frank, the Green Ranger from the original Power Rangers TV show, seems excited.

What Comics Are Available on Free Comic Book Day?
Free Comic Book Day has something for everyone. My Hero Academia, the anime about most of the world having superpowers, has a piece available on Saturday. Korra gets a new sidekick in her free comic. Have someone in your life that is up to their eyeballs in princess goodies? Disney Princess has their eyes on Ariel this weekend.
If you are looking for something just for adults, Barrier looks to be a sci-fi hit. Tank Girl is also going to be available. It’s rated Teen but usually angled toward an older audience.
So, if you need something to ease the pain of watching Avengers: Infinity War, or just have someone who loves the Super Hero Girls cartoon, head down to your local shop this weekend and check out all the free goodies. Many shops will be having special deals going on, so be sure to check them out. Check to find a shop near you here.
Let us know what you are most looking forward to picking up in the comments. Personally, I’m super excited to find out why this giant pink monstrosity is snuggling poor Zim!
