Frequently Asked Questions.
- Is everything free?
NO. All the major publishers put out a comic or two each that represents what they're about, or promotes an upcoming comic or storyline. There will be about 50 different titles to choose from.
- Can I take as many as I want?
In theory, yes, but in practice we urge people to take only the comics that they think will appeal to them. Visitors usually take three or four comics each, and that's fine with us.
We don't allow people to take multiple copies of the same issue.
- Is it busy?
Yes. So busy that we have to limit the amount of people in the shop at any one time, which can cause delays. In recent years we've had people start queuing as early as 4am, and even had people sleep outside the shop overnight to ensure they're first in line.
- I don't care about Free stuff. Can I just walk to the front of the queue?
No. While we acknowledge that Free Comic Book Day makes the shop very busy and it's inconvenient to have to stand in line to get inside, everybody visits us for different reasons.
The queue isn't just for free comic book day, it's to gain access to the shop.
- How long will I have to stand in line?
We aim to keep things moving as swiftly as possible, without rushing people in the shop. Average waiting time has previously been about twenty minutes.
- I'll be along when the crowds have died down. Is that OK?
We try to get enough Free comics to last all day, but every year we're busier and busier. The later you leave it, the less likely we'll be to have any free stuff left.
- I can't make it on the day. Can you reserve them for me?
No. We have so many reservation requests that if we said yes to them we'd have no free comics for people visiting on the day.
Please don't ask for free stuff to be reserved.
