Free Comic Book Day is coming!

Each year Free Comic Book Day rolls around and is one of the most exciting events we hold. This year will be no different when we will hand out thousands of free comics. So the first Saturday every May is a good day.

So just what is Free Comic Book Day? In short, it is a celebration of all the fun that comic books bring to our lives. This is a great time for new, existing and returning fans to check out what is going on now. Many of our customers have adopted the phrase “Geek New Year” to describe this day.

What do you get when you show up? We will have over 3000 comic books to be given away to kids of all ages from a Dear Justice League, Disney Descendants and Pokemon rated All Ages to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Stranger Things and Lady Mechanika rated Teen and even a few Mature titles like Deadly Class. For a full list of titles check out the current Previews catalogs in store or

What else happens? While the free books are fantastic, there is so much else going on Free Comic Book Day. Some of the best sales we offer each year happen.  When purchasing anything during these sales, you will have a chance to win some of prize draws. In addition we celebrate with cake, pop corn and more. There is also fantastic cosplayers coming out to enjoy the day.

Mark your calendars for May 4, 2019! Wait, Free Comic Book Day and Star Wars Day are on the same day this year! What could happen? I guess you will have to stay tuned.
