Free Comic Book Day at Green Brain Comics 2018


Each year, the comic book industry joins forces to create special comics printed up just for Free Comic Book Day (FCBD). Over 6 million FCBD comics will be given out around the world at participating comic shops.

We will have almost 50 different titles to choose from, in a multitude of genres, styles, and reading levels.

Just for visiting Green Brain Comics on Saturday, May 5th, you can choose up to 3 different FCBD comics. And there will be opportunities for you to get even more for helping out some worthwhile causes.

You can get up to 2 extra FCBD comics for each of the following donations.
Canned food for Gleaners Community Food Bank,
Gently used books for Friends of the Dearborn Library,
Old cell phones to benefit Cell Phones for Soldiers.
(Please bring all donations to the front entrance on Michigan Avenue when you enter.)

And finally, you can get one extra FCBD comic for attending that day in a costume. That's a lot of free comics!

A portion of every sale that day will benefit the Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit.


RSVP to the Facebook event for all the updates on special guests and details as they develop.


Along with over 40 different official Free Comic Book Day selections, Green Brain Comics will also have a few free comics that you won't anywhere in the Detroit area.
