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 17th 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.

If you’ve been to Cosmic Comix on FCBD 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 SALE

Once again, we will have THREE ROOMS going on FCBD, all located right here in our shopping center:

  • THE MAIN ROOM - 87 MELLOR AVE
    This is the store you know and love! Cosmic Comix & Toys! Everything in here will be 25% OFF! Plus... POPCORN!
     
  • THE LINCOLN LODGE - 81 MELLOR AVE
    We call this room the Lincoln Lodge because it is absolutely jam-packed with comics, books, and action figures, all of which are JUST $5.00 EACH!
     
  • THE FREE ROOM - 75 MELLOR AVE
    This is where you'll find the Free Comic Book Day comics! Plus more freebies, the legendary dice table, and, new for this year, COSPLAYERS!
