FREE COMIC BOOK DAY
NO LONGER SATURDAY 14th AUGUST 2021
NOW SATURDAY 28th AUGUST 2021
But still celebrating 20 years of FREE comics!
It sounds like it's too good to be true, but we're absolutely on the level! For twenty years comic stores across Britain and North America have been giving away FREE comics on Free Comic Book Day - and this year is no different.
The event is traditionally held on the first Saturday in May. Obviously this year that wasn't possible, so it was initially moved to Saturday 14th August - all of our advertising was based around this date. These are, however, unpredictable times and for various reasons connected to COVID-19 and other international trade issues there have been some delays in the shipping of the special Free Comic Book Day titles from the United States. As a result, Diamond Comics UK - the exclusive distributor of FCBD titles - has stated that it unable to guarantee that the free comics will be available in time for 14th August.
In the light of that, Destination Venus has taken the decision to move Free Comic Book Day back to 28th August 2021 to ensure that we can give our customers the maximum choice of FREE comics that we can.
So, in Saturday 28th August we'll have a wide range of specially selected comics from a wide range of publishers and a wide range of genres for you to take away and read for FREE. No catch, no purchase necessary. All we ask is that you don't take more than one copy of anything.
So, come down and see us on Saturday 28th August and discover something new!
No purchase necessary. Offer only available on Saturday 28th August 2021. Offer applies only to comics marked with the Free Comic Book Day Logo. Offer available while stocks last.
