Free Comic Book Day will be August 14 2021

Diamond Comic Distributors announced today that Free Comic Book Day (FCBD), one of the comic book industry’s most beloved and anticipated events, will once again be a single-day event, scheduled to take place Saturday, August 14, 2021.

The event, which traditionally takes place on the first Saturday in May, will be celebrated in August 2021 in the hopes that much of the uncertainty and disruption related to COVID-19 will have passed.

Joe Field, founder of Free Comic Book Day and owner of Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff in Concord, CA said, “Celebrating 20 years of FCBD is a fantastic milestone. Free Comic Book Day continues to be the introduction to comics for so many. While the world has changed over these last 20 years, our love of comics and the power of comics to entertain and enlighten is stronger than ever. I’m thrilled we’re focusing on a fun-filled worldwide single-day FCBD again for 2021. I can’t wait to see all the first-time comic-curious readers, as well as our long-time faithful fans come together once again.”

“I am so happy to be making this announcement today and so proud of our work with retailers and vendors these last 20 years to bring more awareness to the comic books we all love,” said Steve Geppi, President, Chairman & CEO of Geppi Family Enterprises. “In the past two decades, fans have experienced some truly remarkable Free Comic Book Day events because of the commitment of our partners to create an incredible celebration of comics. It’s such an energizing day and we look forward to making our 20th anniversary celebration the best one yet!”
This celebration marks the 20th anniversary of Free Comic Book Day and plans to commemorate this anniversary include themed T-shirts, posters and a commemorative 20th anniversary logo.
