It’s here! It’s here! Are you ready for Free Comic Book Day 2015? We’ve been preparing to make this our best FCBD event yet, and we’re looking forward to sharing it with you. To make it an awesome experience for all attendees, we’ve put together a little FAQ:
What exactly is Free Comic Book Day?
For more than ten years, stores world-wide have been celebrating “Free Comic Book Day” to promote reading and collecting comics. (If you’d like to read more about it, the official website is a good starting point.) Basically, we love comics and want to share that love with you!
When and where is it?
It’s tomorrow, Saturday, May 2nd, 10am–5pm, at Wonderland Comics. Our doors will open to the public promptly at ten; before that, we will be setting up for your arrival, so we appreciate your patience until then!
Which comics are free?
Comic publishers have printed a diverse selection of comics — for all age groups and interests — especially for the Free Comic Book Day event, and we will have them available for you. We’ve also picked out a number of extra comic titles to add to the mix. To make it easy, we will have a designated table set up with the comics that are part of the promotion. (They are clearly marked with the blue “Free Comic Book Day” logo on the cover.) Our fantastic staff will be happy to help if you have any questions.
How many free comics can I have?
Every year, the awareness of and attendance on Free Comic Book Day has grown, and we anticipate this year will be the same. With that in mind, we want to make sure everyone is able to enjoy the event, so we ask that you please limit your choice to the one or two issues that you’re most excited to read.
Can I bring the kids?
Yes, absolutely. We pride ourselves on being a kid-friendly store, and in fact we’ll have tons of comics designed just for them. We also carry a wide range of science and activity kits, games, and books for the younger generation, so there will be lots to look at. Bring the entire family!
Will there be any special guests?
Yes! We have received confirmation via intergalatic communique that the Garrison Excelsior of the 501st Legion will once again graciously deploy some of their troops to help us out with Free Comic Book Day. We expect them to be available 10:30am–1pm, so please plan ahead.
If you or someone you know is a Star Wars fan (and between the exciting new movie teasers and the spectacular comics relaunch, who isn’t??), you’ll want to make sure to stop in on Saturday for photo ops and mingling with the fantastic members of this professional costuming group. We’re very excited to have them aboard!
Can I update my pull list while I’m there?
If you have changes to make to your list, please email us; we expect Saturday to be very busy. Emailing updates will ensure that we get to your requests correctly and efficiently. Thank you in advance for understanding!
If you have any other questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to call (585-248-0450) or email.
See you there; it’s going to be tons of fun!
