Diamond Comics Distributors has announced that Free Comic Book Day will return in 2021 on Aug. 14. While FCBD has traditionally been held in May in the past, the release notes that it’s being moved to August “in the hopes that much of the uncertainty and disruption related to COVID-19 will have passed.”

It’s such an energizing day and we look forward to making our 20th anniversary celebration the best one yet!”Continue reading “Diamond announces date for Free Comic Book Day 2021”
