Free Comic Book Day

It’s almost that time of year again!  Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday May 6th.  Now you might be asking yourself “What is Free Comic Book Day?”  if so, it is a single day that has taken place every year (typically the first Saturday in May) since 2002 that celebrates independent specialty comic shops all over North America.  Publishers and suppliers work together to provide a selection of comics at cost to retailers who in turn give them away for free.  This means Free Comic Book Day is Free for you the customer, but it does cost each store that participates.  When you stop in for some free books take some time to look around and if you can spend some money.  We often have the best discounts of the year on this day!

In addition to free comics and discounts we will have free cake, popcorn, face painting, cosplayers, and contests for a chance to win some great prizes!
