Comic fans both young and old, from Marvel to DC, will be able to rejoice as this year’s Free Comic Book Day is coming to Montreal next month.

On Saturday, May 4, anyone will be able to take home a free comic book by simply walking into a store.

The event takes place at independent comic book shops all across North America, with thousands of locations around the continent participating in the celebration. Past events have seen millions of free comic books being given away every year to aspiring readers, all of them leaving the store with at least one comic.

This year, thousands of comic shops will be given out well-known titles like the Avengers, Captain America, Doctor Who, Pokemon, Riverdale, the Amazing Spiderman, and Star Wars, to name a few.

It’s not uncommon for comic book fans to show up to the various comic book stores dressed in cosplay either.
