  • FCBD is always the first Saturday in May!
  • FCBD is celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year. Ten years of a wonderful community event!
  • The event started in 2002 (May 4, the day after the first Spider-Man movie)
  • This year, more than 2.7 million comic books will be given away at over 2,000 shops worldwide and in all 50 states.
  • Unlike the video, music, or book industries where big chains predominate (such as Waldenbooks, Blockbuster, etc.), there is no big national chain in the comic book industry. Each store is independently owned and operated by someone in your community. So each store reflects that community and is a part of it. When you go to a comic book store, you’re supporting local business AND supporting independent business, in addition to supporting a terrific art form.
