Free Comic Book Day 2019

Join us again for Free Comic Book Day! For 17 years the Isotope has been celebrating FCBD with you all here in San Francisco and hosting our own unique approach to comics’ most popular holiday.

As is tradition we will be giving away around 4000 free comics that day. 11am-6pm, arrive early for the best selection! Of course we will have our amazing crew here to help you find the perfect comic book reads (and also restock the ever-dwindling FCBD stacks). Come show our extended family some love! Josh Richardson will be returning for his 12th year, Kate Mattingly for her 3rd year, and San Francisco’s greatest just-signed comic artist (her new book arrives this August!) Katie Longua for her 4th year, and of course James and the traditional end-of-day Kirsten appearance too!

We have *so many* comics to give away this year that we even donated hundreds of FCBD AVENGERS comics to the Oakland Public Library this year. We’re happy to know we’re going to be getting these comics this year to some of the Bay Area’s most underprivileged kids, thanks to OPL’s Head of Teen Services. Thanks Oakland Public Library!

But we still have over a thousand comics for all of you, too! Bring your favorite kiddos and come enjoy a huge smorgasbord of awesome reads as only the Isotope can do!

Check out the official Free Comic Book Day site for info on some of the books we will be featuring this year, See you then!
