WARSAW — Those of all ages can grab free comic books in Warsaw this weekend through Free Comic Book Day.
Chimp’s Comix, 919 E. Winona Ave., Warsaw, will offer free comics as part of the annual event from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 14.
Typically, the event is offered in May. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Free Comic Book Day was moved to August this year. During 2020, Free Comic Book Day took place from July 15 to Sept. 9, featuring weekly shipment of select previously-announced titles.
Free comics are from a pre-selected list and are not for all comic books in the store. The list includes 154 comic books, with 55 being new additions and the rest from 2020’s distribution.
Attendees can grab two free comic books from that list. However, patrons can receive more than two freebies by bringing in non-perishable food items to donate to the Salvation Army. Each donation equals one additional free comic. The only limit is one of each free comic per person maximum.
Chimp’s Comix has posted a Facebook album of the free comics being offered this year. Selections include heroes such as Spider-Man, The Avengers, Teen Titans and Batman. Video game, anime and movie fans can also find comics they’d enjoy, such as Sonic the Hedgehog, Assassin’s Creed, Solo Leveling, and Star Wars.
