"The day that FCBD announced that they would be postponing was a sock in the gut for me and about every comic book fan I knew," Nohelty said. "Not everybody goes to shows, but EVERYBODY I know in comics participates in FCBD. It's the one day of the year that really binds everybody together and celebrates everything we love about comics. I know ALT FCD could never replace FCBD, but my hope is that it can give people some of that feeling of togetherness we all got from FCBD, and provide fans and creators a way to share their love of comics together."
