Free Comic-Book Day is Now Expanded Over a Month/UPDATE: It's Cancelled
Update: Now it is just outright postponed/cancelled. Perhaps for later in the Summer.
Free Comic-Book Day fills comic-book stores with droves of people eager to get special free comics and take advantage of special sales. With the World that way it is currently however due to COVID-19 a large group is pretty unsafe. For that reason, the popular event that usually happens the first Saturday in May will be stretched-out over the month. Stores will get shipments of the free comics in different weeks and can give them out however they like (on certain days, thrown-in with pulls, special internet deals, curbside surprises, whatever). This should help reduce crowds but still get people their free comics in a safer manner.
