If you woke up too late today to celebrate Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) with free comics and celebrations at your local comic book shop, don't worry, you can still get some free comics. Free Comic Book Day is held the first Saturday of May and is celebrated differently from store to store; but the one thing that stays the same is that you can get free comics.

While some stores, like Chicago Comics, told WalletPopMoney College writer Jennifer B. Larson that they will let patrons choose five to six comics from a selection of 30-40 titles to ensure that there are plenty of comics to go around, my local store runs out faster than The Flash when he beat Superman in a footrace.

There's good news though. This year there are several places to get free digital comics and celebrate Free Comic Book Day from the comfort of your comic vault, or couch. In order to take advantage of most of these free digital comics you'll need an iPad, iPod Touch or iPhone but we did find a special edition digital comic from Blackline Comics that all comic book lovers can download for free.
