People who read comic books and people who want to read them but haven’t found the right one are invited to participate in Free Comic Book Day on May 6.

Several local shops will be participating, including Challenges Games & Comics at North DeKalb Mall.

To find your nearest participating comic shop, click here.

According to Freecomicbookday.com, “Every first Saturday in May, the industry comes together to give away free comics and encourage fans, both old and new, to flock to the best place in the comic book community: local comic shops. These are the hubs of our community, where fans can come together and discover new comics, make lifelong friends, and find a sense of commonality.”

The major publishers will be providing free comics at participating stores. People also like to dress like their favorite superheroes to commemorate the event, the website says.

CBR.com also published a list of recommended titles to grab during the event. To see the full list, click here.
