Free Comic Book Day is a week and a half away! Presale Days Announced!
Free Comic Book Day is on Saturday May 6th! The Zone will be open at 9AM to 8PM. We had a huge turnout last year and expect the same or more this year. Again this year, we will have the FCBD Books located where our Graphic Novel wall is. The line will wrap around the Back Issue bins with plenty of room to shop. We will once again run multiple checkout points. Last year wait time in line was maybe 45 minutes compared to 2 years ago with a wait time of 2 hours.
There are 55 Free Comic Book Day Books we are offering this year. This is one of the biggest offerings and there are some amazing titles involved this year. I will send out a separate email with a list of the 55 FCBD Books on Wednesday. You may take 1 Free FCBD Book or if you spend $25 or more you may take 1 each of the 55 FCBD Books (while supplies last). I have increased the order on everything, so there should be enough for everyone.
We will also be running our largest sale of the year and as usual, nearly everything will be on sale. If there is an item you are looking for and we are out of stock and we can order it, we will be offering a rain check on that item for you and will still give you the sale price on the item. Details about the sale will be released Wednesday Evening.
Like last year, we are going to offer Presales for FCBD. This worked out wonderfully for folks who were tied up with Oaks and Derby plans. They were still able to participate with Free Comic Book Day and the Sale and not miss out on their Derby plans. Here are the dates for our Presale:
Thursday 4/27 Noon to 8
Friday 4/28 11-8 Noon to 8
Saturday 4/29 11 to 7
Sunday 4/30: Noon to 6
Monday 5/1: Noon to 8
Tuesday 5/2: Noon to 8
Wednesday 5/3: 11 to 8
Thursday 5/4: Noon to 8
Friday 5/5: Noon to 6
On those days you can come in and place items on hold that will be on sale FCBD. In addition to any FCBD Books you want us to pull for you. We will take Cash or Credit Card and everything will be rung up on FCBD. That way if you’re at a Derby Event all day but you wanted some premium back issues and a certain toy, it’s yours. You get the sale price and you can pick them up anytime you want.
Our guests this year will be local artists Randy Gray and Steve Gatrost. Joining them this year will be DC Collectables sculptor extraordinaire Jonathan Matthews!
As always, we ask that you spread the word with all of your friends and help make this the biggest day ever for our beloved hobby!
