To get everyone prepared for Free Comic Book Day, here is a quick guide for all the Bay Area comic book stores that will be honoring the holiday. They are as followed and are not ranked in any order:

Don’t worry East San Jose friends, the guys at Black Cat Comics and Chris’s Comic got you covered.
For our friends in the East Bay, check out Cape & Cowl in Oakland.
No Free Comic Book Day is ever complete without a stop to where it all began, Flying Colors Comics in Concord. This holiday was the brain child of owner Joe Field, who proposed the idea in the August 2001 issue of Comics & Games Retailer magazine. SO basically one could say Free Comic Book Day is a Bay Area holiday at heart.
