There May be Some Superhero Sightings in Rochester, New Hampshire Soon


Free comic book day is Saturday, August 14 and Rochester is ready to celebrate.

Rochester’s Free Comic Book Day is organized by Jetpack Comics & Games, but many local businesses join the fun and celebration, according to city officials.

Free Comic Book Day is a worldwide event celebrated each year in May but due to pandemic restrictions, this year it has been moved to August 14.


What to Expect


Expect the unexpected.  There will be lots of free comic books to take home and enjoy.  There will be a Comic Book Scavenger Hunt that will go on from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m.

Don your favorite comic book character costume for a costume contest at 4:30 p.m. at the Garage at the Governor’s Inn. Local businesses that are slated to participate in the day’s festivities include Red Alert Skate Shop, Union Street Antiques and Collectiques.


Guests to Appear


What would Free Comic Book Day be without some celebrity artists?  Ralph DiBernardo, owner of Jetpack Comics & Games tells city officials “Being able to host Daniel Warren Johnson for the Rochester Free Comic Book Day Festival is a dream come true for us.  His work is so good that he is the guy top creators name as their favorite.  His latest work Beta Ray Bill from marvel comics is reminiscent of the comic services of days gone by.”

Join Rochester Main Street for this fun event and don’t be surprised if you spot a superman or two.
