The Free Comic Book Day / Record Store Day Connection

This coming Saturday April 23 is the 15th annual Record Store Day. Two weeks later, Saturday May 7 will be the 21st annual  Free Comic Book Day!

 

The inspiration for Record Store Day was my little Frankenstein, Free Comic Book Day.

The resurgence of vinyl records can be traced directly to Record Store Day and the enthusiasm of locally owned independent record shops. Sure, big chains and mega-corps have horned in on the vinyl party, but it truly was the specialty market, your local independent record shops, that really made the day and set the music business up for more healthy days.

 

Free Comic Book Day is all about indie comics shops like Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff, putting our best feet forward to thank fans, call back former fans and especially introduce new fans to the wonder of comics entertainment.

As the founder of FCBD, and as a huge music fan, I'm pleased to know my little idea blossomed into a really good thing for the comics market all over the world just as FCBD's cousin, Record Store Day, has been great for indie record shops and music fans.

 

Free Comic Book Day & Record Store Day --- Pop culture events bringing happiness and exciting comics and music fans all over the world!

 

Locally, take in Record Store Day at Up The Creek Records in Walnut Creek and Tone Army Records in Concord.

And make plans to join us May 7 for Free Comic Book Day at Flying Colors Comics or any of the two thousand other shops celebrating the day all over the world!

MEL SMITH
Comic Book Creator/Publisher, ACME INK, 10 TON PRESS

Mel Smith resides in the wilds of Orinda, California with his dog Mavis.

JOHN HAGEMAN

John is the mastermind behind one of Flying Colors top-selling comics of 2022... CHARLEY & HUMPHREY #1, the first comic book based on KTVU's afternoon kid's TV show puppets from days long gone. The comic book is fresh for today's market while still celebrating the fond nostalgia so many have for these iconic Northern California characters!

John is co-publisher at 10 Ton Press and one of coolest cartoonists working today!


BEN FERRARI--- Local talent makes it!

Clayton's Ben Ferrari is proud to be a part of FCBD 2022, with his CARRIERS co-creation featured in publisher Red 5 Comics FCBD 2022 free comic book!

Carriers can be described as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles except with pigeons in the New York sky rather than turtles in the sewer.
Ben's been piloting his own comics for years, having a hand in 80+ different projects. His comics career started at Rob Liefeld's Extreme Studios. Ben's Carriers comic series, which he co-created and edits, is his first to be widely distributed by Diamond Comic Distributors.

The first CARRIERS trade paperback releases in May, to be followed by more of his creations coming soon from Red 5 Comics, including the Divebomb graphic novel and Kanin the Marauder!

Masks Optional as of February 16

As of Wednesday February 16, following the guidelines of the Contra Costa Health Department, please be advised Flying Colors will be allowing shop visitors to enter without a mask.

We do ask those not yet vaccinated to continue wearing a mask, and we strongly urge anyone feeling ANY symptoms to please respect the health of the rest of us by staying home!

While lifting the mask mandate for most businesses is a very positive sign in our collective progress against COVID, we will remain vigilant with our cleaning and sanitizing to protect the health of our staff and our customers.

The county health department is following the lead of the California state health department in relaxing mask mandates in many (though not all) situations. After talking with many of our FlyCo Faithful and seeing how difficult it would be to police the wearing of masks--- demanding mask wearing even when the state and county health officials don't--- we opted to follow state and local health guidelines.

The choice is still there for anyone more comfortable by continuing to wear a mask even when it is not required by state and local officials.

Thank you for being respectful of others.
And, as always, thank you for shopping at Flying Colors Comics!
