It was the international comic book holiday on Saturday, and based on reports we’ve heard, many individual stores had their best days ever—some drawing over 1000 people—and fans for lots of comics. And there was a ton of press, too, from just about everywhere, as the links below reveal. Congrats once again to Joe Field for coming up with one of the best ideas for promoting comics ever.

BTW, although FCBD is a BIG comic book holiday, it is not the only one! We also celebrate:
24 Hour Comic Day
Read Comics in Public Day
Hourly Comics Day

    My LCS was shorted on their offerings, but seemed like they were having a good day when I stopped by with two of my nephews early in the afternoon. I never take any free comics myself, because I think it should be for the kids. I just wonder how many repeat business the stores get from new customers that day.
