Free Comic Book Day is tomorrow and there’s likely to be long lines at almost all of the stores participating… You can see an official list of stores in the Edmonton area here (the store locator can be tricky though, you need to enter postal codes in different areas to get all the stores). Different stores are doing different events. Happy Harbor will have by far the largest event, which you can see details of here. Variant Edition will be having a special event as well which you can see the event page for here. Also of note… MacBeth Comics will be having local Cosplayers and live music and both Wizard’s locations will be offering the chance to get one of each of the FBCD titles available with a $5 donation to charity.
Here’s a rundown of where you can go.
