This Saturday, 7 May 2016 was yet again another Free Comic Book Day, hosted here by Three Alarm Comics.
For those of you who are new to this, FCBD has three stated purposes:
- To introduce the public to the joys of reading comics.
- To call back former comic book readers.
- To thank current comic book buyers for their continued support.
The web home of FCBD is here.
FCBD has a long history and you can read the Wikipedia article here: Free Comic Book Day
