Free Comic Book Day is this Saturday and for the first time EVER, Biowars is creeping out from the online world and into select Gotham City comic book shops!
Did someone ask “What’s Free Comic Book Day?” Our response is “Um, what’s wrong with you” and “The best day EVER!” FCBD is all about a love for comics. It’s a pilgrimage by fans to comic book shops in search of free issues, all kinds of SWAG, and in-store appearances by industry greats. (As Gail Simone pointed out earlier on Facebook, it’s also nice to actually buy something in the stores, too!)
The best part is there’s absolutely no exclusivity involved. All are welcome, from small indie comic creators to big-time publishers to everything in between. It’s all about appreciating the art form, the entertainment and the legacy of comics. What’s not to love?
