6 Million Free Comic Books Ordered For FCBD 2016 – But The Day After, Shops Can Charge

FCBD2016_Archie1-webThe organisers of Free Comic Book Day have announced that there have been 6 million comic books ordered by comic book stores for Free Comic Book Day this year, up 7% on the 5.6 million of 2015, spread between fifty titles and  2300 stores in the USA, Canada, the UK and the rest of the world.

That's an average or 300,000 of each issue.

One thing I noted in the small print this year is that while participating stores must give the comics away on May 7th, from May 8th they are allowed to charge…

Aniter good reason to go to your store on Free Comic Book Day and not wait!
