61 Free Comic Book Day Sales, Signings And Events Today

Today is Free Comic Book Day. Mostly. Diamond delayed certain titles in the UK, so many UK stores will be running another Free Comic Book Day in two weeks' time and some will hold off everything until then. But here are a look at some of the comic book stores who are going above and beyond today, with signings, special appearances, sales, salsa, and other celebrations… any comic book stores missed out, send your details (a paragraph or a visual) to richjohnston@bleedingcool.com today and I will run an update tomorrow morning. You can see the list of titles, and full solicits here, as well as a preview of all the DC titles released digitally early. We even have a few FCBD spoilers if you are in the mood, for Hulk, Avengers, Spider-Man, Daredevil, and Venom

* Standing Order customers can exclusively reserve titles from the 14th until the 28th if they can't make it in (subject to availability). These will be posted on social media as and when we get them in. Private message us or speak to a team member about this.

In other words, to showcase the huge variety of comic books available – there's something for everyone! We're also hosting a virtual workshop on FCBD – also free, of course: Intro to Drawing Comics (Sat Aug 14, 1 – 2pm). Learn the basics of comic design from artist Christopher Chamberlain, including layout, writing, drawing, inking, and colouring.
