Last year I put together a master list of sorts for Arizona comic shops participating in Free Comic Book day. It was one of the most viewed articles on the site so of course I gotta bring it back this year! FCBD lands on May 2nd at most of your favorite comic book shops. If you don’t see your favorite shop listed, please contact me and I can get it added! I will continue to update this throughout April so bookmark it and remember to check it until May 2nd!
