Free Comic Book Day @Green Brain Comics
Each year on the first Saturday in May comic book stores around the world celebrate Free Comic Book Day, but nobody does it like Green Brain Comics in Dearborn!
This year there will be over 50 different Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) titles available to choose from. With this many choices there will be something for every age, taste, and interest. Everyone who attends gets three FCBD books just for visiting that day. But, that’s just the start of the fun.
Green Brain Comics is offering more opportunities to get extra FCBD books. Bring a non-perishable food item for Gleaners Community Food Bank, donate your old cell phone to Cell Phones for Soldiers, or show up in costume! These are just some of the ways to get extra FCBD books!
A host of local comic creators will be there to show off their work and give you a peek into the creative process. This year our headliner guest is David Petersen, creator of Mouse Guard, which will be available as a FCBD book this year. Mouse Guard is an international best seller and has received multiple awards including an Eisner Award for Best Publication for Kids.
Community is always a big part of FCBD at Green Brain Comics. This year a portion of every sale on Saturday, May 4th will be donated to Friends for the Dearborn Animal Shelter. FDAS representatives will be on hand with an adoptable pet. Help them celebrate their 20th anniversary and support all the great work they’ve done since 1993.
This event gets bigger every year with the help of our local business partners, Oakwood Healthcare Systems, the East Dearborn Downtown Development Authority, and the Metro Times. These organizations help us to spread our love of literature, the visual arts, and the magic of combining both on the printed page.
So, mark your calendar, and tell your friends that Saturday, May 4th from 10am to 8pm is Free Comic Book Day at Green Brain Comics!
