Free Comic Book Day Weekend is coming!
Fun, family-friendly, and kicking off the summer convention and movie season, Free Comic Book Day is like a national holiday just for those of a nerdy persuasion. While it’s technically only one day for most shops, here at The Comic Book Shop, we do it for the entire weekend!
What is Free Comic Book Day?
Free Comic Book Day always falls on the first weekend in May and is a day when comics retailers open their doors and invite the public to join them for free comic books (as the name implies), creator visits, games and prizes. This year, at the 13th anniversary of the day, it’s expected that 4.6 million comics will be given away in shops nationwide!
What kind of comics are given away?
Special comics are made available to comic shop retailers, specifically to give away on Free Comic Book Day. These comics range from superhero bestsellers, to indies, to manga, to children’s titles! There’s something for everyone.
What can I expect at The Comic Book Shop’s Free Comic Book Day Weekend?
FUN! Every year the event gets bigger, and with our upcoming expansion we’ll have even more room for awesomeness! Creator signings, visits from Star Wars, GI Joe, and Ghostbusters characters, plus additional swag available from vendors we love can all be expected. Keep an eye on our website, tumblr, and Facebook for more info!
