FCBD 2012: Earthworld Comics And The Beguiling

Looking at stores going above and beyond for Free Comic Book Day 2012? Here are a couple more…

This year Earthworld Comics of Albany, New York, will be working with Books For Troops by collecting donations from fans to send to soldiers in Afghanistan. They have been collecting donations all April long and have been handing out tokens in return, to be redeemed for extra free comics on Free Comic Book Day. The books will then be collected and sent to Afghanistan. And currently, a truck is heading off from Diamond's Memphis warehouse with 20,000 comics, destined to join them.

Earthworld Comics is also promoting FCBD at the local Regal Crossgates Cinema for the midnight premiere of the Avengers movie with prizes for best costume.

While in Canada, at Toronto's famous Silver Snail store, rappers Wordburglar and rock band Nerds With Guitars will be performing live at the store on Free Comic Book Day…
