Saturday, May 3rd, is Free Comic Book Day and you'll have a couple of opportunities to celebrate in Bismarck-Mandan.

Action Jackson Comics, located at 402 E. Main St., Suite 800, has a whole slew of different things happening in honor of Free Comic Book Day:

We are open normal business hours, 10-6. We have a good selection of FCBD comics for the day, we are even dusting off some of the 2013 Halloween ComicFest free comics. Just walking in the door gets you 5 FCBD comics and if you are in costume you get an additional 5. We will have a costume contest for children, teens and adults. Have your photo taken, sign the release form and we will post your photo on the Action Jackson Comics Facebook for voting. We are partnering with Cards, Games and more for a Heroclix gaming. We have FCBD Heroclix pieces. We will have a drawing every hour for the Heroclix pieces. We have balloons, book markers, FCBD wrist bands, stickers, buttons!

Juke Joint Comics and More, located at 500 N. 3rd St., will also have some great Free Comic Book Day specials:

Here's the deal: Doors open at 12 p.m., first come first serve. You're welcome to take one of each title. Plus: BOGO on all new comics, 5 for $5 on all unmarked back issues, and $1 raffle - you could win a $20 gift cert! And of course, a costume contest for all to enjoy! We'll snap your pic and do a vote on FB the following 2 weeks. The winner will receive a $40 gift cert and a lot of high fives. Plus other goodies as well.
