Free Comic Book Day is Saturday, May 6!
As you probably know, Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is a single day when comic book stores around the world give away specially designed comic books ABSOLUTELY FREE to anyone who comes into their shops.
This year marks the 16th year of celebrating Free Comic Book Day – it’s always the first Saturday in May – and it has proven to be a smashing success, spreading the word that comics are terrific reading for people of all ages.
Okay, now for the goods. If you’ve been to Cosmic Comix on Free Comic Book Day before, you know what to expect: basically, the biggest and baddest block party around! From music to games to balloons and more! But on top of that we’ll also be having a STOREWIDE 25% OFF SALE! But wait, there’s so much more!
The biggest and best news is that we’re once again expanding Free Comic Book Day into two spaces next door to us, Annex 1 and Annex 2! We’re calling Annex 1 the LINCOLN ROOM (because everything in it is just $5.00) and it will be at 81 Mellor Ave, a couple doors down, while Annex 2 will be at 75 Mellor Ave and it will be the FREE ROOM!
