Free Comic Book Day 2013: Setting the record
Comic books have been a driving force in global pop culture, with a good number of them adapted into movie blockbusters and celebrating Free Comic Book Day every first Saturday of May. Participating comic book shops around the world give away thousands of free comics on that day.
Year after year, Free Comic Book Day shares the joy in reading comics. In spreading the word that comics make for fun, enjoyable reading, it helps raise awareness in the fight against illiteracy.
Free Comic Book Day organizers Castle Geek, National Book Store, and Neutral Ground bring this worldwide event to the Philippines carrying the theme “Setting the Record”. The event invites comic book fans to set a new record for having the most number of sketches done in a comic book event.
Apart from giving away free comic books and setting a new record for sketches, the event will also be a venue for creator signings, toys and collectible displays, and showcasing local talent.
Free Comic Book Day 2013: Setting the Record kicks off at 9:00 AM and runs until 8:00 PM at National Bookstore Quezon Avenue in Quezon City. For more information, call +632 477 8508.
