Free Comics Day!
February 15, 2011 - Emily Dimov-Gottshall
Got a cool email from Diamondcomics.com! Read below:
Save the Date! Free Comic Book Day is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year on May 7, 2011.
Each year, participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely *FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. Since its inception, Free Comic Book Day has given out over 20 million free comics to nearly 5.5 million people.
The goal of Free Comic Book Day is to promote the comic book medium to new customers young and old and celebrate the independent comic book retailers and their stores. Comics are fun and a great tool for introducing young children to the world of reading.
This year's list of free comics includes mainstream titles such as: Kung Fu Panda, The Smurfs, Spider-Man, Sonic the Hedgehog, Green Lantern from this year's expected blockbuster movie and much more!
I've created a YouSendIt link below that includes a few of this year's covers as well as the FCBD logo and pictures from past year's events.
I hope you consider including a mention of Free Comic Book Day to help make this year's event the best one yet!
If you need any addition information, would like to conduct an interview with one of the publishers or creators, please feel free to contact me. For more information check out freecomicbookday.com.
