There’s a whole lot of stuff to do to get ready for this year’s Free Comic Book Day. It’s this Saturday, May 1st, and we’re running a 25% off everything sale, plus half-off on all back issues AND we’ll also have a ton of new clearance graphic novels hitting the shelves that day for the first time. Did I mention that? Probably. Plus, for every $50 you spend, you can get the next in our line of Super-Fly FCBD Original T-Shirts. This year it’s the Avengers “Get the Band Back Together” Tour shirt, featuring art from Rusty Shackles (pictured at left). Rusty will be in the shop, selling prints, doing sketches and being awesome. In addition to all that Free Comic Book Day madness, you have the following books and cool stuff to look forward too, all of which listed after the break. Also, don’t forget another Super-Fly Live art show Saturday, May 8th from 2pm to 7pm. Resident DJ JFX316 spins the tracks while artists do their thing to the shock and awe those around.
With all the talk and hype about Free Comic Book day, you’d think that we’d be focusing on solely on that. But we here at Super-fly are an ambidextrous bunch. That’s why the week after Free Comic Book day, May 8th, we’ll be hosting our second Live Art Show in store. The first one went over very well and we’re doing it again. Starting at 2pm and going all day, artists will be creating artwork of various styles and genres, all to the eclectic soundtrack of our resident DJ, JFX316. We invite you to come out and enjoy the event, either as an artist, a music fan or just an interested party. If you are interested in participating as an artist, please email us at SuperFlyComics@gmail.com and let us know what type of art you’re planning on doing so we can have an appropriate idea of how much space we need.
Hope we see you soon.
We all know what time is coming up: Free Comic Book Day! Same as every year (well, except for the first few years they had it), the first Saturday in May (and this year it’s May 1st) is the happiest day in a comic book living person’s life! This year we’ve got more comic books than ever, for a wide range of interests. This year we’ll have 28 books that will be given away, one per title per customer (yes, that’s right, you can take up to 28 unique Free Comics!) and they are:
ARCHIES SUMMER SPLASH, ARTIFACTS FIRST LOOK, BONGO COMICS FREE FOR ALL, DOCTOR SOLAR MAGNUS ROBOT HUNTER, FRACTURED FABLES, GREEN HORNET, IRREDEEMABLE #1, KIZOIC SHREK & PENGUINS OF MADAGASCAR, MOUSE GUARD FRAGGLE ROCK FLIP BOOK, SIXTH GUN #1, SONIC THE HEDGEHOG HIDE SEEK DESTROY #1, STUFF OF LEGEND & MORTAL INSTRUMENTS

In addition to the Free Comics, we’ll also be running our biggest sale of the year: 25% Off everything in the Store! Yup, free stuff and an awesome sale, you can’t beat that! OH WAIT, YES WE CAN! We’ll also have 50% Off all of our Back Issue Comics and 50% off select clearance graphic novels, many of which will be hitting clearance for the first time that day! Yes, that’s half off! Yes, I am in fact that serious!
I’m not even going to do the whole “Oh hey, that’s it” thing and then go “BUT WAIT THERE’S MORE,” because there is more and I’m not going to sit here and be disingenuous when it comes to Free Comic Book Day. We will, as always, have our loyal troops in uniform: the 501st Storm Trooper Legion, led by Lord Vader himself. This year we’ll also have artists in the shop drawing, selling sketches and doing commissions, including Rusty Shackles, of Comic Alliance.com fame and Oni Press’ Resurrection series. Rusty has also set us up with a whopper of FCBD promo, the Avengers “Getting the Band Back Together” image, celebrating the return of the classic line-up of Avengers in this May’s Avengers #1. For every $50 you spend, you’ll be able to get this commemorative tour shirt, a retail value of $19.99, for FREE while supplies last.
When you put all of these together, I don’t think you’ll be able to find a better Free Comic Day around. That’s right kids: Super-Fly Comics & Games: A Free Comic Book Day you can believe in!
