Some of the hottest titles from Marvel Comics, DC Comics, Dark Horse, and Image Comics will be available with no purchase required, while supplies last. Over two million comic books for readers of all ages will be given away by participating stores nationwide, introducing as many people as possible to the excitement of comic books!


Midtown Comics celebrates Free Comic Book Day in-store on Saturday, May 3rd. Please note: Some titles will be in very limited quantities and are not expected to last all day, and we recommend that you arrive early. 

Store hours:

FCBD starts at 8am at Midtown Times Square, and 11am at Grand Central and Downtown.


All FCBD titles will be posted online at at approximately 11am EST on Monday, May 5th and will be offered while supplies last. It is recommend that you order early.

What's special only at Midtown: This year, they offer Midtown Comics exclusives of the FCBD book Future's End from DC Comics, and the Armor Hunters Special from Valiant Entertainment. Both releases feature the Midtown Comics logo and are ONLY available through Midtown Comics.

Future's End is a great issue to jump on board DC Comics' epic weekly series, featuring tomorrow's Dark Knight, Batman Beyond (making his first appearance in The New 52). Watch as he battles an army of cyborgs to avert an Apocalypse in the future, which could destroy the present DC Universe!

Armor Hunters features a group of the universe's fiercest warriors that are eager to destroy the X-O Manowar for the good of all. What horrible secrets does the armor hold? And how many armors have they destroyed before this one? These answers and more are revealed in the Valiant Universe events of 2014 – and it all starts right here with exclusive previews, character designs, and interviews from the biggest guns the Valiant Universe has to offer!
