Just a reminder folks that this is on this Saturday


Thanks for the reminder. My Local comics shop (Raygun Comics in Richmond - West London, not Yorkshire) seem to be really going for it this year. Loads going on, not just the free comics.

Anyone know of any participating stores in Greater Manchester? Preferably on a tram or bus route.

Taking a visit to Chaos City Comics again as usual per year. It's worth a trip down there if you're in the queue for a hour or two on the day as they allow anyone to take as many free comics as they like. They all go under an hour so it's worth the rambling around and squeezing through people to get what you want. Greedy? yes, but they do try and give everyone who visits a comic. Worth trying to one of every FCBD comic? worth it if you're fast enough.

store locater is a bit sloppy. it lists Cornwall as a country! it has … store locater is a bit sloppy. it lists Cornwall as a country! it has Lancs and Lancashire which is essentially the same thing.It does not list Wigan as a city in the list and instead has it under Lancs. It lists Preston in the list but selecting it shows nothing but shows Preston under Lancashire, which shows a participating store in Prestonim sure there is probably other errors



It is very United States centric. They really should get someone who owns a map of the UK to put the UK comics shops in the correct regions, and in the case of Cornwall, the correct country, although I do know some people believe that Cornwall is it's own country.

I thought they would have hardly any left as it was late afternoon, but we were the only ones they had come in all day. The comics they had on offer my boys had never heard of. Hope they have a better selection this year. Perhaps I should try a different store.

Lots of stores participate in Free Comic Book Day but a lot of comic book stores are independent and the comics are not free for the store to get in stock. They cost about 40p each and if they give hundreds away they're spending a lot of money so many of these independent stores (my regular store included) will only give free comics to customers - someone who makes a purchase or someone who is a regular customer. Other stores such as Forbidden Planet will give them away to whoever and it won't matter as they can write off the losses easier and hope that a few may come back and spend in future.

If you're going to an independent store, spend a few minutes chatting to the guys in store, buy something. The free comics aren't ever as good as the usual ones. If you're in Forbidden Planet, take as much as you can and run it doesn't matter. Though because they give it all so quickly chances are it was all gone before you even got to the store.

It'll be on the site that I linked to - usually a few weeks before the date

Any news on when the list of participating stores will be released? Or how we can find it when it is released? Because I don't think we have a comic book store here in Scarborough...

It is annoying that there are none close to me. Always miss out on this each year.

I live just around the corner from FP Manchester in the Northern Quarter, so I'll be visiting. Not a comic geek as such, but I've bought a comic in the past from FP Bristol when I was visiting my brother.

I advise people to go VERY early. I tried last year's event, going at about noon and all the comic book stores in central London (see list above) said they'd been emptied out. I only wanted one particular comic and a nice customer in one comic shop overheard me asking for it, opened his backpack and gave me his spare copy. I was getting the comic on behalf of a friend and hadn't bought a comic in over 40 years. But I was impressed by what I encountered, a really pleasant and friendly crowd of eccentric individuals! :-D A couple of weeks later I was back again buying a comic (but this time on my own behalf).
