It’s one of the biggest days of the year for comic book fans, and many Calgary stores are taking part in Free Comic Book Day.

Traditionally held in May, Free Comic Book Day was pushed to August 14 earlier this year due to concerns surrounding the pandemic.

The event is a single day when comic book specialty shops worldwide give away books at zero cost to anyone who comes into participating locations. Different stores will have their own policies on how many free comics you can receive, but you’ll go home with at least one book if you enter a store celebrating the day.

If you’re on the hunt to nab some free reads, these Calgary shops are confirmed to be taking part in this celebration of comics, according to Free Comic Book Day’s website.
