Over 50 comic titles will be released especially for Free Comic Book Day and given away to fans of all ages. Visitors can also take their photo with Doctor Strange and Scarlet Witch cosplayers.

Free Comic Book Day is a way for comic shops to introduce the art form to new readers and give back to fans. 

“We and Zumi Pizza are using the event to say thank you to our customers who think it’s important to support small, local businesses,” Hall of Comics co-owner, Jake Johnston said in a press release. 

The Hall of Comics is located at 3 Turnpike Road in Southborough.
