Come join us and celebrate Free Comic Book Day! We’ll have all sorts of free #1 issues covering all genres of comics; stop by and discover something new!
For all of you early risers, B&R Espresso will be here from 10am to Noon with coffee & pastries to make lining up before we open at 11am more enjoyable!
Skooders’s Hot dogs will be here all day with their delicious hot dogs (of the beef and veggie variety) and tasty toppings.
As well, members of the Vader’s 501st Legion and Rebel Legion will be patrolling the shop for photo opporunities!
And if all of that wasn’t exciting enough for you, how about 25% off on all graphic novels in the shop?
