This Saturday would have been Free Comic Book Day. Last night Steve Geppi told us that it would be restaged in the autumn. The comic book store Collector's Paradise is planning something different dubbed, Stay Away Comic Book Day. In a message to readers, they state;
If you know our stores, you must know that FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is our favorite day of the year, and FREE COMIC BOOK MAY is our favorite month of the year. We go all out the whole month to entertain our customers and provide them with the best deals, creator signings and FREE Comics the whole month of May.
This year, FCBD's fate is uncertain. SDCC has been cancelled so FCBD may be cancelled or postponed, but we, along with a few other stores decided to put together a one day event appropriate for this Pandemic-filled world we live in.

MORE UPDATES on Friday or Saturday Morning!
Save the Date and Stay Away!
Just to be clear, this is a virtual event– do not come to the store. We are not open to the public.
And as for that pizza mention, that's because Collector's Paradise is still allowing people to pick up their comic books in person from one of their stores – just not from Collector's Paradise but the neighbouring pizza parlour that is still allowed to be open to the public.
NEW PICK UP OPTION. Next to Winnetka store, D'Amores Pizza will let you pick up your books. AND, if you mention COLLECTOR'S PARADISE as the coupon code before ordering, you will get a 20% DISCOUNT. All you have to do is call our shop, place your order, pay for it over the phone, and, after 4pm same day OR Next Day, stop by and pick them up at the D'Amore's Pizza.
Now that's an interesting solution.
