IMAX cinemas will promote Free Comic Book Day 2012 to their email subscribers and on their website, as well as tweeting, Faceboking and the like, in association with their Marvel Marathon running before the midnight release of Avengers the day before Free Comic Book Day.
Larry's Comics of Lowell, Massachusetts, will have David Petersen, creator of what is being billed as the greatest Free Comic Book Day giveaway ever, the 48 page Mouse Guard/Labyrinth hardcover, on hand to sign, as well as creators of Luther Strode, Justin Jordan and Tradd Moore.
They are accompanying this with a Mouse Guard colouring competition on the day, advertised to local schools and libraries. Larry's Comics' versions of the FCBD Mouse Guard book, also has a special tip plate for his autograph.
Valiant and Archaia will have booths at the store, promoting their upcoming work.
And they are serving hot dogs, with a special "The Pink" relish based on a german recipe – "sweet when accompanied with mayonaise & spicy when accompanied with mustard." So there's that, too.
There's a limit of three free comics, six for those under fifteen and mailing list subscribers, and you get more if you wear a Larry's Comics T-shirt. And listen to the Valiant/Archai presentations…
