It's free and it's comics, what's not to love
The best day of the year is back. It's Free Comic Book Day. If you are wondering what all the fuss is about, head to Kinokuniya or King Comics in the CBD to see the buzz around.

All publishers involved in FCBD (Free Comic Book Day) have one mission, thank the existing reader base for their continued support and engage new audiences and introduce them to the world of comic book reading. There's something there for everyone who knows or wants to know more about the comic book world. Do you like Roy Rogers, The Phantom, Punisher, Pokemon, Superman, Aquaman, Firestorm, Atom, Cyborg or Catwoman? Have a quick peak at the 2016 editions for FCBD including Captain America, The Phantom, Avengers, Civil War II and many more.

Free Comic Book Day on 7th May


Always scheduled for the 1st Saturday in May, many major comic book stores promote comic books by way of this annual event. It's a celebration of existing readers, a way to re-kindle their interest and also invite new readers to the world of comic books.

Be sure to head there early to participate in all the fun. See many enthusiasts dressed up as their favourite comic and anime characters. The queues at both Kinokuniya and King Comics are expected to be long. Based on my past experiences you might encounter a 45 min to an hou's queue to get through the serpent like lines through the bookstore to the free comic book counter. Grab your free goodie bag and your favourite comic books from the many available in the FCBD promotion before you browse the store. Most participating outlets have offers and promotions on the range of comic books in addition to the free comic book giveaway.
