Austin Books & Comics

Free Comic Book Day 2019

Free Comic Book Day

Our biggest day of the year!

Each fan who joins us on Free Comic Book Day Saturday, May 4th (8am – 6pm) will be able to choose 10 FREE COMICS from a wide selection available in our huge tent set-up, many of which lead into the biggest events and new series of the year!

FCBD is an all-ages event! We’ve organized the comics for our recommendations for age-appropriateness. Parents, we’re here to make sure you’re getting the right book for your young readers!

Austin Books, Guzu Gallery, Outlaw Moon, & The Sidekick Store will each be having a drawing for a $100 Gift Card, good at all of our stores. Stop by each one on FCBD to increase your chances of winning!

The Sidekick Store will have a special sale all day during Free Comic Book Day.

Want to be prepared for Free Comic Book Day? Here are some helpful hints:

  • See what all will be available at freecomicbookday.com! That way you’ll know what to get when it’s your turn to pick.
  • Use Snapchat? Check out our special Free Comic Book Day filter!
  • Free parking will be available in the big lot across the street this year.
  • Stay hydrated if it’s hot. The line doesn’t take long, but we do have water and drinks available.
  • When you pick out your ten comics, bring them to our tent staff. We’ll put them in a bag with your name so you can visit our stores and enter our drawings!
  • Costumes are encouraged! We have a special costume photo area available this year.
  • Be sure to tag your photos @AustinBooks so we can share them!

Todd McFarlane released this image today and we're already getting calls. This is Spawn #311 Cover B Chadwick Boseman Tribute. Add it to your account using ComicHub or send us a request and we'll add it for you. AUG200369 https://t.co/BXHJBymrZJ AustinBooks photo

Due to a mistake made by the boss-man, DC Comics will be arriving Friday this week instead of Wednesday. Such shame.

If they arrive before Friday, we will announce it here. https://t.co/Pd3iJQN28F
