FREE COMIC BOOK DAY didn’t happen this year.. Welcome to FREE COMIC BOOK SUMMER.
FREE COMIC BOOK SUMMER will take place over 9 weeks, starting 15 July and ending 9 September.
Each week will have a different set of comics, so please be sure to check the schedule, which I’ve summarised below.
OF COURSE, there is NO PURCHASE REQUIRED for these books. They will be located on the stands, arranged in alphabetical order along with everything else each week.
- You are LIMITED to 5 FREE COMIC BOOK DAY comics EACH WEEK (some weeks that’s everything, other weeks you’ll have to choose);
- You are LIMITED to 1 copy of each, PLEASE. NO DOUBLES. I want EVERYONE to have a FAIR SHOT;
- I WILL NOT reserve or otherwise hold copies. I want EVERYONE to have a FAIR SHOT;
- You can visit EVERY WEEK that you like, there are NO LIMITS on your visits;
- PLEASE bring your FREE COMIC BOOK DAY books to the FRONT COUNTER each week so we can give you a BAG for your comics.
We normally have a SALE during FREE COMIC BOOK DAY each year, this year we will not – a 9-week sale would be too much.
However, I would like to remind everyone that we began selling ALL graphic novels, trades and hardcovers at 25% OFF EVERY DAY back in January. That covers ALL in-stock and special-order items. So if we don’t have it: PLEASE ask for it, we’ll get it for you.
Again, there is NO PURCHASE NECESSARY for ANY of the FREE COMIC BOOK DAY books. FREE COMIC BOOK DAY means FREE! I would like to THANK YOU in advance for ANY purchase you may make, as every little bit helps, and I truly appreciate the support.
Be excellent to each other!
