Free Comic Book Day 2012
From the All Things Fun! Newsletter:
So what is Free Comic Book Day? It's a national event hosted by comic stores every year on the first Saturday in May. It's a celebration of the comic medium and literacy. All Things Fun! hosts one of the largest celebrations of Free Comic Book Day in the region.
Free Comic Book Day is a great way to see what's happening in the world of comics. Comic publishers create titles specifically for the event. These books are usually introductions of new characters or new story arcs. Retailers (like All Things Fun!) then purchase these titles from the publishers and give them away FREE!
Join us Saturday, May 5, 2012 as All Things Fun! celebrates with one of the largest celebrations in the region! This event is so huge it spills out to three area libraries!
And as if a huge assortment of FREE comics wasn't enough we are hosting our famous FCBD MEGA-SALE! Everything in the store will be on sale. Including Buy 1, Get 1 Free Graphic Novels! The first 10 people in line will also get a free copy of Marvel Comics Secret Invasion (Retail: $29.99.) Don't forget doors open at 11am!
We'll have random door prize raffles all day long! One lucky customer will win a copy of the New 52 Batman Hardcover Vol. 1 Court of Owls signed by Scott Snyder!
We'll have costume characters and Artist Dane Cypel from Arcana Studios on hand. All this and a schedule full of great events.
So don't forget, tomorrow, Saturday, May 5th is Free Comic Book Day, so get to your local comic book shop, and especially if you're in the South Jersey/Philadelphia area, get to All Things Fun! and celebrate!
