Free Comic Book Day will be going down at the Cosmic Comics store (Mount Dev 225 Beyers Naude Drive Northcliff) www.cosmiccomics.co.za. They are boasting 8640 Free comics that they they have brought in for the day
"We really don't want to have to pack them all away again
so please come past next Saturday and claim your FREE Comics"
Cosmic Comics have also gone the extra mile. They will be giving away a free copy of DC's Divergence that they have had specifically printed with their branding on the cover by DC Comics, WOW!!!! .
Divergence is limited to 5000 comics worldwide and on Free Comic book day happening on Saturday there will be 1000 available.
Discounts on various items. Anyone who comes in cosplay gets one extra free comic and a R 30 voucher that valid for 1 week. (Cosplay does not need to be comic genre specific but needs to at least fall in some form of popular culture.). They will also be running Special MTG and Tabletop gaming events.
IN CAPE TOWN
FCBD will be celebrated in Cape Town at the Readers Den Comic Shop at Claremont’s Stadium on Main shopping centre.
This is the 14th successive year that Readers Den has hosted the comic con-style expo, which attracts over 3 000 fans, geeks, artists, cosplayers, vendors and exhibitors.
Fans will be able to meet and greet their favourite local comic book artists, bag a few of their most loved comics at discounted rates, pick up geek and pop culture merchandise, enter a lucky draw, get their costume on for the cosplay masquerade, enjoy various live acts, take in a comic art exhibition and a Star Wars comics mini exhibition, play console games and indulge in plenty of other geeky treats.
Readers Den have confirmed "All 50 official FCBD 2015 comics will be available on the day. Some will be available in limited qty's, please be early if you have your eye on a particular issue ! FREE, ONE PER PERSON , WHILE THEY LAST !"
Below is the list of the 50 Official Titles that will be released on FCBD, I'm hoping that our comic book stores in South Africa will be generous enough to stock these free titles and make them available to us with no "Conditions"
So Be sure to get to any of the above stores early on Saturday morning, because if they are stocking all 50 titles, the number of issues per title will be limited.
