FREE Comic Book Day & HUGE SALE!

This Saturday, May 2nd is the 9th annual Free Comic Book Day that is an industry event the first Saturday of May that exists to promote how wonderful comics are to the public at large, who may not have read a comic in a long time and or don't know how much they've changed.

At my store, Alternate Reality Comics, Free Comic Day is all day Saturday (May 2nd) from 11-7pm. In addition to the great selection the various companies produced this year, I'm having a HUGE .25 cents back issue sale! When was the last time you bought a comic for a quarter (ever?)!? With the help of my friend, Rob, the past month or so, I've finally been getting all of the boxes out of this storage unit I've had for way too long and we've been updating the dollar back issue boxes here at the store. Well the boxes are now full and there's still a number of comics that haven't seen the light of day in years so I'm going to put them out Saturday on two large tables to see if anyone wants to give them homes for a mere quarter.

I just want to emphasize that no purchase is required for Free Comic Book Day, but if you have some loose quarters just laying around, I'll have some comic gems for only .25 cents! And if you're ever in the Bay area, specifically Concord, California, visit Flying Colors Comics and say hello and thank you to owner Joe Field for creating Free Comic Book Day!
