Comic Heaven hosts Free Comic Day event in Willoughby

Many Canadians are headed to their favourite comic book shop on Saturday for 'Free Comic Book Day'. Our goal for the event is to have an exciting, fun day full of free comics for fans young and old, something to introduce new readers to comics, and something for long-time readers to enjoy.

"Giving someone something free to read that they love and usually pay for is a very special thing", said Nicholas Blazejaski, customer assistance specialist at Comic Book Jones, when discussing the impact of Free Comic Book Day. Along with your free comic book they will have make and take crafts all day. "It's a day of celebration of comics for everyone", Rowles said.

Stationed outside Comics on the Green were a pair of "Star Wars" Imperial soldiers, dressed in full costume, including a TIE Fighter pilot and a sandtrooper, portrayed by Thomas Finley and Pete Faas.

Comic book-related activities can be a way for families to spend time together.




Salazar said the event is a great way to promote the comic book industry. "We're just checking out the comics and stuff".

"We've done this in the past in a slightly different way", she said.

Danny Klein, of Kingston, goes through some comic books at Rubber Mallet Comics.
