Free Comic Book Day comes to Lancaster

The annual, international Free Comic Book Day arrives in Lancaster this Saturday (3rd may)... but at an all-new location.

First Age Comics are celebrating opening at a new shop this year and are inviting both comic fans and the curious of Lancaster to the first ever Free Comic Book Day at 3 Moor Lane, Lancaster - which has plenty of added space for extra comic fun.

There will of course be ... free comics, as part of the event's aim to encourage new comic readers. This years offerings include Britain's very own 2000AD (Rebellion), Future's End (from Batman publisher DC Entertainment), Guardians Of The Galaxy – Rocket Raccoon (Marvel), Mouse Guard (Archaia), Armor Hunters (Valiant), Adventures Of Jelaby (Capstone), Buck Rogers (Hermes) and Simpsons Comics (Bongo).

But as well as the giveaways, expect to see plenty of costumed comic-book characters, as once again shop owners Mary and Lucy Braithwaite attempt to get a record number of comic book characters in their store on FCBD for the huge annual group photo.

And, most importantly, as well as comics aplenty, there will be – cake! "For energy levels," Mark tells us. For him or the customers, we wonder?

The event starts at 10.00am and runs throughout the day. Get along and help celebrate comics!
