Fans of all franchises, unite! Free Comic Book Day is upon us again, offering up a long list of titles for kids, adults and adult kids of all ages. Locally, fans can head to several comic book shops to peruse and grab copies of this year’s titles, from beloved franchises like Stranger Things, Doctor Who, The Avengers, Bob’s Burgers, Lumberjanes, Minecraft, Star Wars and much more. A few participating stores — Merlyn’s downtown and the Comic Book Shop at Northtown Mall — are also hosting costume contests with prizes for favorites in various categories. Both of these shops are allowing customers grab three comics each, so if you want to stock up, plan to tour the region and visit all six of this year’s participating stores, listed online at the link below.
