Free comic book day


#Every day is Free Comic Book Day at the library!

Free Comic Book Day, held the first Saturday in May, is great for attracting new comic book readers. It’s often cross-promoted with a new superhero film. This year, of course, it coincides with release of Dr. Strange and the Multiverse of Madness and the season finale of Moon Knight.

But what do you do when all those free comics have been given away?

#All you need is a library card!

#Missing Moon Knight already?

Did the Disney+ series leave you wanting more? There’s no need to wait for Moon Knight’s next on-screen appearance! Check out the Moon Knight by Lemire & Smallwood (The Complete Collection).

#Fans of Oscar Isaac

Did you know? Former Republic flyer turned Resistance fighter, Poe Dameron has his own series of comics! Star Wars: Poe Dameron follows Poe and his X-Wing squadron on top-secret missions set before The Force Awakens.

#The Sandman

The first season of The Sandman is “coming soon” to Netflix. If you’d like to read (or revisit) the classic comics before those episodes drop, download The Sandman (Preludes and Nocturnes) by New York Times bestselling author Neil Gaiman.
