Free Comic Book Day- August, 14th
Free Comic Book Day is an annual event hosted at hundreds of comic book shops across the country to celebrate the art form and encourage new fans. Here in Statesboro, Galactic Comics & Games is the place to get in on the action on Saturday, August 14th.
The doors will open at 9am and every individual will be able to select four comics from a wide selection, featuring all of the major publishers carried at the shop. Keith Brown, owner of Galactic Comics & Games, recommends people come early, as some of the comics are in high demand.
There will also be opportunities for additional free comic books! You can receive two comic books if you are cosplaying or wearing a costume. This will also enter you into a special raffle for bonus prizes and gift certificates.
Several local artists will also be set up at the shop, doing live sketches and selling their art. This is a great opportunity to talk with artists and learn more about the art form itself. This is Galactic’s 16th year celebrating the event- make sure you add Free Comic Book Day to your Saturday plans when you Visit Statesboro!
You can enjoy the festivities yourself at Galactic Comics & Games, at 21 East Vine Street. For more information, give them a call at 912-489-3123.
