Free Comic Book Day Meets Star Wars Day

Free Comic Book Day

Today is Free Comic Book Day!

It’s an annual event where comic book stores all over the nation hold special events, author visits, book signings, contests, and more. And the best part is that you can get a free book or two in the process as well.

This year, the day just happens to fall on Star Wars Day as well, so it’s only fitting that one of the free comic you can get today is a Star Wars one.

Star Wars Day was built around a simple pun. There really is no other reason to celebrate Star Wars today. The date doesn’t coincide with its original release or anniversary.

One of the catch phrases for the science fiction franchise is “May the Force Be With You!”

A clever wordsmith one day decided to tie that it to the calendar date and declared, “May the Fourth Be With You!” and it stuck.

There are a lot of great things happening today to celebrate both events.
