This year we are mixing things up be providing both new & collectible comics.  Some from years passed and others made just for this day!  Most of the comic books given away are all ages appropriate.  Of course it is up to  parents and guardians to review the materials before giving them to children as some comic books may contain violence, adult and real-life situations. 

The Rochester, NH Free Comic Book Day Festival is one of the biggest events every year in Rochester so plan accordingly and be sure to read through all of our information pages so you know what to expect from the day.  Parking is ALWAYS a premium so arrive early and plan on staying late.  Dress appropriately for the day as it is a rain or shine event and the lines can be long!
