Free Comic Book Day, California Edition

Taking a page from Legion of Sand over in Arizona, we compiled this list of comic shops in California who are participating in Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 7th.

To search for your exact location, head over to the FCBD Store Locator and enter your zip code. These stores will be giving out free comics while supplies last — and certain rules may apply. You can also support the shop by making a purchase during your visit!

The FCBD website also has a list of titles available and the age groups they are geared for. See the list here.
