The biggest holiday in the geek calendar, a time of cosplay and fellowship, a time of free comics and treats – FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is once more almost upon us!
What is Free Comic Book Day you ask? WHERE IN THE NAME OF KRYPTON HAVE YOU BEEN?? Here's the low down on FCBD.
FREE COMICS – That’s right, just as the name suggests you get FREE COMICS on FCBD. At KINGS you automatically receive the Gold Marvel and DC titles, and then you can choose 2 more from a range of 50 books (check out all the great titles on offer right here: http://bit.ly/2tZVolU)!
That’s 4 free comics! All for you! And that’s not all we have planned.
Free Comic Book Day wouldn’t be the same without some awesome guests for you to meet, and we’ve really outdone ourselves this year (if we do say so ourselves).

You know Nicola from her Image Series Black Magick, Wonder Woman, Secret Six, and Earth-Two for DC Comics – not to mention her incredible, Kings Comics EXCLUSIVE cover for Action Comics #1000!
