FCBD Countdown!

Saturday May 5th is fast approaching---- and that means FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is almost here.

Check out the old photo here. It's from a cool little postcard book from Denis Kitchen's publishing company, called simply "READING COMICS" (available now at FLYING COLORS).

This shot is taken from the late '50s, when drugstores featured one spinner rack of comics. When you visit FLYING COLORS this Saturday for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, feast your eyes on rack after rack of comic books, trade paperbacks, comic strip collections, back issue comics----there's something cool in stock for every reader! after all, we've got your cool stuff right here in FLYING COLORS!

About FCBD: I've been asked countless times over the last few weeks "How early should I get to FLYING COLORS for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY?"

If history is any indicator, we'll have comics to give away all day long, even with the likely prospect of a long line at the start of the event. However, we're old pros at moving the line pretty quickly, so if you do see a line, don't be frightened away by it.

We will be giving away comics from 11am-7pm--- but not knowing how big a crowd there will be, we can't guarantee that specific FCBD comics will be available all day. What we will be doing, though, is a drawing for a complete set of the 40+ special edition FCBD comics. Since there is mature content in some of the comics, the drawing will be open only to those 16 and above. There will be other prizes open to all ages--- including t-shirts, collectibles and a $100 FLYING COLORS Shopping Spree!

Don't miss it!
