What is Local Comic Shop Day ®?
Local Comic Shop Day ® is a special annual day to call attention to locally owned independent comic book specialty stores, celebrating their vital role in being the primary fire-starters of pop culture.
Every participating shop is doing something a bit different, but most will have exclusive variant comics and volumes that you won’t find online or at any chain shops. You need to hit a participating local indy comic shop on the day to score these!
Some items will be super duper limited, so get in early to make sure you don’t miss out!!!!
We re going to have a massive back issue sale! Bring a wheelbarrow!
And we’ll have other specials on the day!
Can I ask for the exclusive items to be held or put aside for me to get on another day, or can I order online?
Nope, this day is all about rewarding you for getting into the comic shop. Any (if any) left over items will be available for online sales two days after the event.
