Lancaster's First Age Comics gets set to celebrate Free Comics Day
Lancaster's very own comic shop, First Age Comics, have supported Free Comic Book Day - a day when you can drop in and pick up a free copy of comics from top US publishers like Marvel and DC Comics, among others - every year since they opened in June 2006 and they'd like to invite you to celebrate comics with us once more this Saturday (4th May).
"The day is a fantastic way to thank our amazing customers who have supported us throughout the year," says Mark Braithwaite, "as well as encourage new readers to discover comics for the very first time."
There's an incredible range of free comics up for grabs this year from the comic shop, based in the Assembly Rooms, King Street, as well as an assortment of other giveaways too. This year sees Free Comic Book Day coincide with the traditional Star Wars day (May The Fourth) and appropriately there is a Star Wars title up for grabs.
Other Gold Sponsor titles include Marvel's Infinity, Bongo For All, Sesame Street, Superman, Walking Dead and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
In amongst all those titles there's the annual offerings from 2000AD, Image (Aphrodite IX), Top Shelf Kids (Owly), Red 5 (Atomic Robo) and DC Nation (Batman). Also available will be the extremely sought after Iron Man III Mk42 Heroclix piece.
There'll be plenty of fun and a number of special guest appearances from some well known comic characters throughout the day (and anyone who fancies appearing in costume will be every welcome) so come along and celebrate all things comics on Free Comic Book Day!
