Marco Davanzo, Executive Director of ComicsPRO – the organization that runs Local Comic Shop Day – says the goal of this year's event is still the same, "To get comic fans into their local shop for the holidays. To celebrate the local comic shop" But Local Comic Shop Day 2020 has a new look. First of all, it's on a Wednesday instead of a Saturday, the Wednesday before Thanksgiving. The organizers decided that since Wednesday is traditionally the day that new comics come out, that should be part of the celebration. Also, in order to expand the day to all stores and make sure everybody gets to celebrate, the organizers have eliminated the requirement that stores have to register for the day.
Image Comics look to have four titles with special variants for Local Comic Shop Day, on Wednesday, 25th of November. And while Boom Studios has silver foil variants, Image Comics titles are more likely to be going for gold. We only have one of the covers so far, another Dr Seuss-parody cover for Ice Cream Man #20, but there will also be special covers for participating stores for Monstress, Spawn and a reissue of Invincible #1 to accompany the new animated series.
