A FREE DAY OF FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY
Worldwide Free Comic Book Day Comes to Erie with Comics for All Ages!
BOOKS GALORE in Erie, PA is one of thousands of comic book shops around the world celebrating the comic book art form on Saturday, May 4th. On Free Comic Book Day, over 3.3 million comic books will be given away by participating stores, introducing as many people as possible to the wonders of comic books! The wide array of comic books being published today ensures that readers of all ages — children, teens, and adults – can find something appropriate that will stir their imaginations.
Celebrating its twelfth year, Free Comic Book Day has proven to be a smashing success, spreading the word that comics are terrific reading. Even if you have never picked up a comic book, stop into BOOKS GALORE, because you never know what you will end up finding.
Comics are perfect for today’s times. Comic books and graphic novels are considered hip, hot and smart; they have propelled to the front ranks of pop culture, many being adapted into movies like this year's "Iron Man 3”, "The Man of Steel", and "The Wolverine", and television shows like "The Walking Dead" and "Arrow". BOOKS GALORE will be offering comics featuring all these characters and more. The first weekend of May is going to be a big day in the comic book world.
Regular updates, information about comic books, and a list of participating publishers and their free comics are all online at www.FreeComicBookDay.com.
Free Comic Book Day kicks off at 10am and runs until 7pm at BOOKS GALORE, 5546 Peach St, Erie PA 16509. Call 814.864.1853 or check out the official website for more information.
