A Good Reason to Dress Up: Free Comic Book Day is May 3rd!


When was the last time you got something for free


Well, have we got a treat for you: two things for free! Every year on May 3rd, select comic book stores around the world join up with comic book producers to offer their customers a free comic book of their choice. All you have to do is find a participating retailer, stop by on May 3rd, and pick out your comic book... for free!

It's a great way for comic book stores to introduce new readers to the art and literature form, as well as to give back to their regular fans that support them year-round.

The other bonus about Free Comic Book Day is that it's also a great excuse to dress up as your favourite comic book hero, which brings us to your second freebie: CostumeBox.com.au has free express shipping anywhere in Australia when you spend $60 or more! Show your appreciation for your local comic book store by showing up as your favourite character or throw a superhero themed party and invite your crew to dress up!

Here are a few great ideas for dressing up for Free Comic Book Day:

While The Cap wears a new, darker outfit for the start of the movie, he quickly reverts back to the famous red, white and blue we know him best for. Check out a few variations on the Captain America Costume here:
