Free Comic Book Day 2024 - May 4th

What is Free Comic Book Day?

Once a year your favourite comic book publishers release one or two comics each to give away for FREE.  This will be Peebles Comics & Games' 4th year taking part, and we invite you to come along!

A full list of available free comics can be found on the official Free Comic Book Day website:

Saturday 4th May 2024 from 0930 - 1700


Peebles Comics & Games, 42a Northgate, Peebles, EH45 8BZ

Is everything free?

No - please don't just help yourself to anything in the shop!  We will have a wall of free comics with everything that is available this year.

How many can I take?

Every person can choose 2 free comics each.  If you decide to spend some money with us, then for every item you buy, you can take another free comic!  Finally, if you dress up in costume, you'll also be entitled to another free comic!

Are there any restrictions?

Yes, the free comics are colour coded depending on their age suitability - see our handy guide below.

Will I have to stand in line to get in?

There's a chance you may need to wait in line.  In previous years, we have had up to 15 - 20 people waiting to come in for a few minutes.  However, if you come before 11am, or after 3pm, you'll probably be able to walk straight in.  We usually have more than enough free comics to last the whole day too.

Can I reserve the free comics?

Sorry - no.  We want encourage customers to come into the shop, and this is their reward for making it in.  However, any spares after the day will be made available for sale for a nominal price on the following Monday.

Can I come in costume / cosplay?

Of course!  With your permission, we'll take a picture and publish it on our social media pages too.  PLUS you'll be entitled to an extra free comic just for dressing up :-)  There might even be a prize or two for best dressed!

Anything else I should know?

We'll have a few other goodies to give away for free too, like kids sweets and some soft drinks.

I have another question...
