Free Comic Book Day 2018

Free Comic Book Day 2016

Saturday, May 5th, 2018 (10:30 am - 1:30 pm) will be FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, and Spandex City in Charlotte, NC is your must-visit family-friendly destination!  Doors open at 10:30 am! This year, there are 50 different Free Comic Book titles! Each family will receive a grab bag of Free Comic Book Day comics, plus a Free Marvel Comic and a Free DC Comic!*

We will have "Tomorrow's Comic Artists Today" on-hand to do some great comic cover sketches for you! These Visual Arts students from Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools will showcase their talents with custom-drawn covers on special "blank cover" comics (available on Free Comic Book Day). The supply of blank covers (and the artists' time) is limited, so arrive early. Maybe you'll be lucky enough to get an early work from the next Jim Lee, John Romita, Jr. or Amanda Conner!
