Make sure you go here and get your five FREE comics
Free Comic Book Day is back on again for another year! You can discover new titles as well as some old favourites when you receive five FREE comics! Absolutely FREE! There are no catches or gimmicks and you do not need to buy anything to receive these five free comics!
The Free Comic Book Day takes place on Saturday 4th May 2019 at 9.00 am at Comics Etc, Shop 5, 81 Elizabeth Street, Brisbane. It will finish at 5.00 pm, so make sure you mark it in your diary or cellphone.
Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is a single day each year, where organisers will give away thousands of free comics. Each FCBD comic is specially made for the day by all the big companies which means you will not get Action Comics #1 for free! There are no hooks and you basically just have to show up and you will be given the free comics!
Some of the titles that you will be able to get are:
FCBD 2019: STREET FIGHTER - SAKURA VS KARIN - they have been adversaries since high school. Now Sakura and Karin's rivalry enters a new arena - the arcade! Martial arts meets e-sports as two of Street Fighter's fan-favourite femmes battle it out.

Peter Parker in a new film, will once again suit up to save the world with his web-slinging superpowers!
