This year we've over 500 pounds of free comics along with more from out wonderful local talent. In addition to this smorgasbord of free comics, we're also pleased to announce that we'll be offering a store-wide sale, creator signings, and a special deal on our back stock comics.

For year 5 we've got four creators lined up to talk with, sign, and answer questions about their comics. This year's line-up feature...

She's also written the Eisner Award-Winning series Air and Cairo, put forth the awesome all female super-hero team A-Force, and her first prose book Alif the Unseen was a New York Times notable book and winner of the 2013 World Fantasy Award for Best Novel.

Lonnie is currently working on Lonnie's Art Assignment, a series of comics about his experiences carrying out Art Assignments from the youtube channel of the same name.
Free Comic Book Day Store Sale
Just like last year we're putting everything in the entire store on sale that's subject to the slight whimsy of fate. When you come up to the register with your purchase, you'll roll 3d6 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 68% off for clearance comics and graphic novels)!
If you don't like to put your discount at the hands of fate, don't worry! This year there are guaranteed discounts based on how much you buy.
And of course last but certainly not least...
Back Stock Special Deal!
We did this last year and it was a huge hit. So again this year we'll have our back stock and clearance books set up for everyone to look through. $20 buys you as many comics from our clearance bins as you can fit in one of our fine discreet brown paper bags without it tearing!
