What is Free Comic Book Day?
Free Comic Book Day is the first Saturday in May each year, and on this day participating comic book shops give away brand new comics. These comics are made specifically for Free Comic Book Day too, so they are usually one-off stories or something special.
The idea behind giving away comics once a year is to bring people to comic book stores who might not normally go, including younger readers. Most comic book stores use the day to feature sales on other comic books or special promotions as well.
Where is Summit Comics & Games?
Downtown Lansing, Michigan on Washington Square (216 S. Washington Sq. #B), right by Kelly’s and Zoup. You might have to park a bit away and walk over (there is free parking on the weekends).
When Does the Free Comic Book Day Action Start?
8:00 AM. Yes, in the morning. Pretty early on a Saturday for some, but heck that’s sleeping in for me. If you want first crack at the exclusive comics, you might want to show up sooner than later. The event comes to an end at 5:00 PM
