Free Comic Book Day 2017


Free. Comic. Book. Day.

Four of the sweetest words in the English language when combined together.  But what is it?  Could it really be that simple?  

It is!

Free Comic Book Day is a day for you to swing by your local comic book shop, including any of our three Collectors Corner locations, and grab some awesome free comics from publishers like Marvel, DC, Dark Horse, Archie, and more!  It's a day for us to celebrate our love for comics and get some great books into the hands of readers young and old.  Collectors Corner is your go-to spot for the biggest and most exciting Free Comic Book Day in Maryland!  Join us as we celebrate FCBD 2017 in style with local creators, costumed superheroes, and more family fun than you shake a Groot at.
