This year we’re teaming up with Samurai Comics in Mesa and Chandler to celebrate Free Comic Book Day on May 6th. We’ll have 12 local creators alongside 3 national guests so be sure to visit both locations!
Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is a day when participating comic book shops give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops! Founded on the belief that for every person out there, there’s a comic book they’ll love, the annual event offers a huge selection of free titles designed to appeal to a broad range of age levels and their tastes.
When Darick Robertson and Andrew MacLean had to cancel their appearances at our inaugural Arizona Comicbook Arts Festival event in February, we promised we’d bring them back out as soon as we could, and we’ve done just that!
Darick Robertson is the co-creator of THE BOYS and has worked for every major publisher in the industry. Andrew MacLean is the creator of the hit Image Comics series, HEADLOPPER. Jeff Johnson has worked for Marvel Comics, most notably as the artist on WONDER MAN. He’s also worked in animation on series such as Batman: The Brave and The Bold and Young Justice.
Creators will be at the shops from 10am-4pm on Saturday, May 6th, with Darick Robertson doing a special CGC Signing event on Sunday, May 7th at Brandon’s Comics in Tempe from 1-3pm.
