On Saturday, May 2, AREA 52 COMICS AND GAMES will be giving away over 2500 free comics.
The biggest comic event this year won’t be found on-screen or at a large convention – it will be held in Oakwood, Georgia and admission will be 100% free!
AREA 52 COMICS AND GAMES just opened our doors in November, but the community has been great to us so far. To thank everyone, we wanted to do something really special for our first FREE COMIC BOOK DAY event.
Free comics. No gimmicks. No hassle. No catch. Just plain free.
Every customer that walks in the door will get free comics from our FCBD selection. The complete list of comics we’re offering can be found here. We’ll be starting at 5 comics per person (10 if you come in costume!) while supplies last. If turnout is huger than expected (we’re already expecting it to be huge), we may have to reduce the limits a bit.
AREA 52 MINI-CON
As part of the event, we’ll be holding our first annual AREA 52 MINI-CON featuring six artists. Among them will be:
