Free Comic Book Day 2015 & Phoenix 2-Year Anniversary!
Ahh Free Comic Book Day. A special day, a wonderful day! A day of so many comic books, given away for Free! But here at Phoenix, Free Comic Book Day is more than just a chance to grab oodles of new reading material. It's also our anniversary!
Free Comic Book Day 2015 Details!
For those of you who aren't familiar with the history of this esteemed event, Free Comic Book Day has been happening since May 4, 2002. Every year on this day comic shops like us across the nation open their doors and welcome hardcore comic fans and doe-eyed new readers alike with the promise of free comics. This year we are pleased to present the following smorgasbord of titles:
That's 50 distinct titles that are gonna be sitting on our tables waiting to be taken. And if that wasn't enough, we have a bunch of last year's free comic book day books AND more than a few books from Halloween Comic Fest 2014. If you want more information on any of the titles, the official page Free Comic Book Day has more in depth details and digital previews available for downloading!
From 10 AM when our doors open until 9 PM that night (or whenever we run out of things) you will be able to pick up to 8 different titles from the tables to take home with you free of charge. If you purchase anything at all, you'll be able to take home another 4 titles! And we're gonna make it really easy to purchase stuff because almost everything in the store will be on sale!
Free Comic Book Day Sale
This year we're putting a twist on how we put things on sale. When you come up to the register with your purchase, you'll roll 2d6 and we'll take that much percentage off of your entire order! Subscribers that's you too! Want clearance stuff? You get the best of both worlds (that's right, it'll be up to 62% off for clearance comics and graphic novels)!

This year we are choosing to highlight the fine local comic book creators here in Seattle. At various times during the day we'll have the following awesome talent here in the store signing copies of their books and showing off their work!
