Retailers around the world will once again celebrate the greatest holiday of the year, at least for comic fans, on Saturday — Free Comic Book Day. In addition to giving away comics from a wide range of publishers, many retailers will also host creator signings and other events at their shops. To see what’s happening in your area, head over to the FCBD’s event listing page.

For more on the comics themselves, Dorian at Postmodern Barney has a rundown.
