What's the limit to the amount of free comics you can have?

#4 Posted by Lady Tlieso (10198 posts) - - Show Bio

Thanks for putting this up. I thought about it this morning. Free is free. Maybe you'll find something new also that you don't normally pick up. Yeah the free stuff is limited but there's quite a few publishers on board and it's usually decent quality stuff.

To find a comic shop near you, call 1-888-comicbook (most likely just in the U.S.). Do they have free comic book day in other countries?

Free Comic Book Day is awesome! Come on, what other entertainment industry and what other group of retailers sets aside a day to give their customers free stuff! Free DVD day? NO. Free CD day? NO. Free comics? Oh, yes!

This is a great promotion: it brings in new customers and it rewards the ones who've been loyal. Win-win. The shop I go to is awesome-only limit was one of any book per person. I took my 13-year old nephew, who usually doesn't see the inside of a comic shop, and he was stunned. He walked out with an armfull of free comics and a list of stuff he wanted to come back to buy. I picked up the Hellboy book, X-Men, All Star Superman, The Death-Defying Devil book (which worked; I wasn't interested in the Superpowers books before, but that little teaser story has me wanting to see more), Soliel (not really my thing, but I figured the price was right),and an Averngers sketchbook. All of that in addition to the thirty dollars worth of other stuff I picked up made for a good day.

I love free comic day!

For real, if you can't find it tell me and it's yours, I've decided that stockpiling my comics isn't the best use for them, so I'm happy to share the wealth.

Free Comic Book Day was here in the UK last Saturday. It included; All Star Superman, X-Men, Marvel Superheroes, Dan Dare, EC collections and Devil Claw to name about half of them. This is a great idea, not just because we all like free comics, but it is a way of drawing in new readers when the entertainment market is flooded with alternatives such as computer games, dvds, etc. And to keep the comic industry thriving, we surely need to keep introducing new readers to the heroes and titles we all know and love.

I stayed the hell away from my store, we're always packed on FCBD and my boss would try to get me to work. Luckily, I grabbed all the FCBD stuff I wanted last week.

It only looked like Savage Dragon and Blackest Night would be worth picking up.
