20 Comic Book Decor Ideas So You Can Celebrate Free Comic Book Day All Year Long
My second favorite day of the year behind Halloween is here — Free Comic Book Day! For those of you not in the know, Free Comic Book Day, or FCBD, has occurred in comic book shops across the nation on the first Saturday in May since 2005. Along with a variety of comic book titles available for free, it's also a day for both first time readers and long time collectors to support their local comic book shop. But for fans, one day is just not enough to bask in the glory of comic book fandom, which is why so many of us choose to surround ourselves with comic book-inspired decor year round. Here are 20 of my favorite pieces.
Bat Family Art
Forget Batman and Robin — Batman and Batgirl is the combo I’d like to have in my house.
