Comic Swap To Hold Free Comic Book Day May 6

Comic Swap, downtown State College’s comic book and game store, is participating in the 2023 Free Comic Book Day on Saturday, May 6.

Free Comic Book Day is an annual celebration held nationwide by comic book stores that aims to coincide with a superhero movie. This year, that movie is Marvel’s “Guardians of the Galaxy: Vol. 3.”

In an Instagram post, Comic Swap shared that the event lost its popularity following the pandemic but intends to bring in a large number of people this year.

Stores will receive comics with familiar superheroes and characters from popular games, including “Animal Crossing,” “Street Fighter,” and “Runescape.”

Throughout the day, Comic Swap will also raise money for local businesses. Last year, the business made a $1,000 donation to Centre County PAWS, which is a local animal shelter.

Comic Swap is located at 110 S. Fraser Street, behind Dunkin’. To check out the comic book selection and join in on the Free Comic Book Day celebration, visit the store on Saturday, May 6, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m.
