Free Comic Book Day is nearly upon us! Tomorrow, Saturday 5th May 2018, both Proud Lion stores will be offering free comics to our customers from a selection of titles chosen by the publishers for this year's event. You can scroll down to the bottom of this article for a list of what comics will be where, but before you, there are a few things you should know about how this event works!
The biggest misconception about Free Comic Book Day is that, because the comics are free to customers, they are also free to retailers - unfortunately, this is not the case. This has been said best by comic book writer Gail Simone, who really captures the spirit of what FCBD means to stores:
This year we will be changing the limits on how many free comics customers can get from us. If you are a Reservation Service customer whose folder is up to date, you may have one copy of every title you think you'll read! Non-Reservation Service customers may have one copy of up to five different titles. If you have any orders with us which are overdue, you will need to settle these orders before receiving any free comics. Customers with overdue folders that are not paid for will not be allowed any free comics.
We know a lot of our customers work on Saturdays, or otherwise can't arrive early in the day for events like this. To make sure those customers are still able to get their hands on their favourite titles, we will be offering all free titles in two waves. The first wave will be available from 10am, and a refresh wave will be laid out at 1pm.
Even with this afternoon refresh, we often find the free comics can run out quickly, particularly for more popular titles. We ask every customer to please only take what they think they will genuinely read, in order to make sure there are enough comics to go around for all customers across the day! Requests for one of every available title will not be filled.
Don't forget this year's Free Comic Book Day is also Proud Lion's 10th anniversary! We'll have a selection of promotional items available for purchase to celebrate the day with us. For more details, take a look at our recent article.
Finally, take a look at what titles will be where on the day and start planning what you want to grab!
