It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, it’s almost time for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! You’re invited to join Fanbase Press and a host of talented comic book creators in celebrating this special day on Saturday, May 5, 2018, at three exciting comic book locations throughout Southern California! With appearances at Hi De Ho Comics in Santa Monica, CA, The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach, CA, and Earth-2 Comics in Sherman Oaks/Northridge, CA, you’re sure to have a day full of comics and fun!
On the first Saturday in May each year, participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE to anyone who comes into their stores. This is a great way to bring those who may be unfamiliar with the comic book medium into the fold.
Here are three great places to find Fanbase Press on Free Comic Book Day:
