Free comic book day is almost here. This year it’s on Saturday May 6. For those of you who don’t know what free comic book day is, check out the website freecomicbook.com. You will find all the information about the day. Plus you can find a shop near you for the days events.
Free comic book day is basically a chance to get into reading through comic books. Comics are great for imagination and a perfect tool to help our kids get hooked on reading. Nothing beats seeing your kids stuck in their own little world while holding a book.
This year we will be heading back down to Happy Harbor Comics here in Edmonton to take part in the days events. They always make the day great fun for everyone who shows up. For us, the day isn’t just about something free but it’s taking part in the atmosphere. People getting together who love reading, drawing and games.
They have contests for dressing up. This year it’s a Wonder Woman theme. For a chance at advance screening tickets come dressed up as Wonder Woman or wearing her colours and be entered for a chance to win. Local artists will also be on hand drawing custom sketches for a donation to the Edmonton Food Bank. A great cause and is much-needed in our city.
I hope you will come join me down at Happy Harbor Comics on May 6th. It will be a lot of fun for the family. Getting a new comic to read is always exciting as well. Make sure you follow Happy Harbor Comics on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to keep up to date and see pictures of the days events.
See you there!
