Free Comic Book Day 2017

May 6, 2017
9:00am to 8:00pm

A Big Thanks

Thanks to everyone who came in to have some fun and helped us support the Lancaster Libraries.


What is Free Comic Book Day

As the name implies, Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America (like The Comic Store in Lancaster) and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops.

Free Comic Book Day 2017 marks our 16 year anniversary and we can't wait to celebrate! 

Only at The Comic Store - Lancaster

As always, each customer receives one free comic book. For each additional copy we request that a donation of 50 cents be collected at the register. All of the donated money will be used to buy graphic novels and books for the Lancaster County libraries.

Last year The Comic Store collected over $1300.00 for the local libraries.  Two years ago, The Comic Store won the National Award of Best Charity from Diamond Comic Distributors for its efforts in sponsoring this fund-raiser.

Special Guests

We are proud and happy to announce that Owner, Creative Director, Finishing Specialist at Artisan FX Jimmy Cosentino will be joining us again.  This year he is bringing the Lancaster, Pa. Ghostbusters along. The surprise feature he is uncovering this year is the Ghostbuster Car!


Garrison Carida of the 501st Legion

The Vader's Fifth 501 Legion Garrison Carida was such a huge hit last year that they are returning this year with even more Star Wars characters!
