Something for nothing? YES - FREE comic books
Comics - they have been popular for so long and are over such varied subjects. I used to save them and ended up with hundreds of them - I loved those old style ones!
There will be a free comic book day on Saturday 4th May 2019. This will be the biggest day on the comic book calendar this year!
This is your invitation to be part of the biggest celebration of comics and the comic book community in this huge worldwide event. FCBD, for those who have not yet been to one of these events, is such a great day and just as good as it sounds!
The idea is that you come into the shop and you get to pick up some FREE comics! There will be a huge selection of titles and you'll have the chance to pick yourself a handful of new comic reads for FREE! Yes, totally and completely FREE! No catches, no hidden fees and no purchase is necessary. All that is needed is for you to have an interest in checking out the world of comics and if this is you then this event is also for you.
It will be held on Saturday 4th May 2019 at The All Star Comics Melbourne, 53 Queen Street, Melbourne.
Some of the things you can expect at this event are family only which is the first hour of trading between 9.00 am and 10.00 am to help families beat the rush along with the children, there will be children's only free comic show bags.
There will be a FREE comic book All Star Costume Contest. For this, you will be invited to don a costume and head into the store to help share the comic joy on the streets of Melbourne. You could perhaps win an All Star gift voucher with both an adult and a children's division.
