Yes, it’s that time of year again. Comic Book Christmas, some folks call it. The best day of the year, others say. The start of the summer awesomeness season, it has been called. You’re all right, chums, and this year we’re breaking the FCBD champagne bottle on our newer, bigger, flashier location on Saturday, May 2nd, starting at 10am and running until 8pm.
In addition to the over 30 books we’ll have FREE for anyone who walks in the door (check the list at the bottom), we’ll be running 25% off all Comics, Graphic Novels and Manga. Plus, we’ll have buy one, get one free 25 cent comics. This is our biggest sale of the year, and you’ll be kicking yourself if you miss it. Entertaining the troops during the day will be folks from Ohio’s 501st Storm Trooper Legion. This is your chance to ask a Storm Trooper about service for the Empire (what are the medical benefits? Will the Empire pay for school?), get Force Choked by Darth Vader, or maybe just have them sign some autographs. If you saw them last year you know what it’s like to stare down the barrel of an Imperial Blaster. If you missed them last year, you need to come and pledge Allegiance to the Dark Lord himself.
All day we’ll have free video games to be played on our new 70″ projection screen, and have movies playing as well. There is something for everyone this year!
Remember, the Free Comics will be on a first come, first served basis (and you can have 1 copy of as many of titles as you’d like) but the sale runs all day. The Imperials will only be available for a limited time (they do have rebel scum to run down), but we’ll keep you apprised of their schedule.
