Join FanX® Salt Lake Comic Convention™ at


Free Comic Book Day is an annual event founded on the belief that for every person out there, there’s a comic book that they’ll love. 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.

We urge fans to support their local comic book stores by making one purchase for every two free comic books they take.

Date: Saturday, May 5th, 2018
