Saturday marks the 9th annual North American Free Comic Book Day. Begun in 2002, FCBD is an effort to support literacy, comic books, and independant retailers. It is coordinated by the comic industry's largest distributor, Diamond, and features specially-printed comics as giveaways.
The annual celebration will be in full swing at local comics shop The Deep this year, as Starbucks, Red Robin, Ghostbusters and representatives of our local chapter of the 501st Legion of Imperial Stormtroopers will be on hand to keep the party going. Patrons of all ages are encouraged to come dressed as their favorite hero or villain.
Every visitor will recieve a free comic (while supplies last). Come and peruse the inventory but stay for the fun.
The Deep is located on South Memorial Parkway:
2312 S. Memorial Pkwy Suite A
Huntsville, AL 35801
Hours: Monday- Saturday 11am to 8pm
