Free Comic Book Day at Santa Monica Library

Since 2002, thousands of comic book shops around the world have given out millions of free comic books on the first Saturday in May. Santa Monica Public Library joins the fun with its second Free Comic Book Day celebration on Saturday, May 5, 2018.

  • Starting at 10:00 am, comic book lovers of all ages can stop by the Santa Monica Main Library or any Branch location to pick up a free comic book (while supplies last).
  • From 1:00 to 3:00 pm, drop in for comic book crafts, a photo booth, virtual reality experience and other super activities at the Main Library, 601 Santa Monica Blvd. Costumes are encouraged!
  • At 2:00 pm, walk over to our event co-sponsor Hi De Ho Comics at 1431 Lincoln Blvd. for a cosplay contest, part of their all-day Free Comic Book Day event.
  • At 3:00 pm, return to the Main Library and cap off the day with a screening of a colorful cosmic adventure featuring a hammer-wielding Norse god, a passive-aggressive trickster, a big green grouch and a villainess.
