It’s the THIRTEENTH and FINAL Official Free Comic Book Day for Jetpack Comics!

Scavenger Hunt 10 – 4 all over town
(note the Jetpack Comics closes at 5)

Just like the name says! It’s a day to get FREE COMIC BOOKS. Sponsored by The Rochester Main Street Association, The Governor’s Inn, The Rochester Opera House and Jetpack Comics llc with big thanks to the City of Rochester, NH for allowing this event to happen.

This city-wide event will be taking place at locations around the downtown Rochester area. All ages are welcome to attend the event. Families can visit participating locations and collect Free Comic Books! Most of the comic books given away are all ages appropriate.

Of course it is up to parents and guardians to review the materials before giving them to children as some comic books may contain violence, adult and real-life situations.

The Rochester, NH Free Comic Book Day Festival is one of the biggest events every year in Rochester so plan accordingly and be sure to read through all of our information pages so you know what to expect from the day. Parking is ALWAYS a premium so arrive early and plan on staying late. Dress appropriately for the day as it is a rain or shine event and the lines can be long!
