Free Comic Book Day - The Inside ScoopFree Comic Book Day started two years ago as a promotional day to bring new comic readers into stores. This day is also strategically linked to major comic-inspired movies. It coincided with the release of Spider-Man in 2002, and the opening weekend of X2: X-Men United in 2003. Now in its third year, Free Comic Book Day will follow the release of Spider-Man 2, which opens in theatres on June 30, 2004.
