Free Comic Book Day is a fantastic tradition in the world of geekdom. It is not only a great way to encourage new readers to visit their local comic book store, but there are also amazing sales on trade paperbacks, discounted collectibles, games, and toys that support local businesses. And, if you want to still enjoy the wonderful day after the shops close (or perhaps if you can’t make it to the shop that day), there are plenty of opportunities to find what you’re looking for online.

One of the best ways to occupy one’s time is to dive into a good story. The world around us goes quiet as we become lost in a fantastic world with intriguing characters.

Rowling’s Harry Potter has seen the popular series turned into a beloved film franchise, while expanding into the world of theme parks and exhibits. Marvel’s cinematic universe has also propelled itself from the text and artwork of many different comic books to movies, TV shows, and more.
