Head Into Your Favourite Comic Book Store For Fun Events
When I think of comic books, I think of my youth. I would save my pocket money and go to the second-hand book store and exchange the comics I had and buy new ones to read. My brother was a Phantom or action comic book fan, but I preferred Ginger and Betty and Veronica, so our tastes were vastly different. Memories can provide happy carefree times when looking back.
Adelaide's Free Comic Book Day is scheduled Saturday 4th May 2019 This is a time for you to get crazy and dress in your favourite character attire in readiness for free hours of reading at your local comic book shop.
Free Comic Book Day is an annual promotion by the North American Comic Book industry hoping to bring enthusiasm to new readers in comic book stores. Plus, the new readers can see what all the fuss is about after listening to their parents rave on about the old days; when reading comic books was the absolute trendy thing to do.
The first Saturday of May each year is the designated day set aside for Free Comic Book Day, when shops across the world, give away comic books to anyone who comes into their store. The day is coordinated by the industry's largest distributor, Diamond Comic Distributors.
