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 2018 marks our 17 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.  Three years ago, The Comic Store won the National Award of Best Charity from Diamond Comic Distributors for its efforts in sponsoring this fund-raiser.
 
The Vader's Fifth 501 Legion Garrison Carida are joining us again this year with even  more Star Wars characters!
 
We are proud and happy to announce that Owner, Creative Director, Finishing Specialist (Artisan FX) Jimmy Cosentino will be joining us again.  This year he is bringing the Lancaster, Pa. Ghostbusters and their car along as well.
 
We expect a whole plethora of cosplay characters to be visiting our store and parking lot, including Batman, Batgirl, and many others.  Make plans now to visit our store May 5th!!
