Free Comic Book Day Press Release


Worldwide Free Comic Book Day Comes to Oakwood, GA with Comics for All!

Area 52 Comics and Games in Oakwood, GA is one of the thousands of comic book shops around the world celebrating the largest event in the comic book industry on Saturday, May 6th: Free Comic Book Day (FCBD). Each year, thousands of participating stores give over six million comic books to millions of fans to introduce them to the wonders of comics.

Free Comic Book Day is a great event for the whole community. Bringing people together, finding books for everyone to enjoy, and seeing people of all ages—children, teens, and adults—sharing our passion for comics is incredible,” said Denton Theriot, owner of Area 52. “Even if you’ve never picked up a comic book, we want to welcome you to our store on May 6th. There are many amazing comics this year and we can’t wait to share them.”

This is the 3rd year Area 52 Comics and Games celebrates FCBD, offering the community a fun, family-oriented event where everyone can find a comic they’ll enjoy. Besides free comics, Area 52 will also be hosting meet and greets with local artists, holding a costume contest, and giving away prizes.

“Along with traditional releases from Marvel and DC, we also have amazing books like Legend of Zelda, Star Trek, Dragonball Super, Monster High, TMNT, Rick & Morty, and dozens of others. I know we’ll have a comic for everyone. Comics are fun; they’re enduring. Reading comics is one of the few activities that all ages can enjoy. “
