Free Comic Book, "Summer," is Happening
Free Comic Book Day was postponed in 2020 due to COVID-19. It was unclear what might be happening in its place, but now we have an announcement. We're getting, "Free Comic Book Summer." From Wednesday, July 15th to Wednesday, September 9th comic-stores will get 5 or 6 free comics to give away each week. This basically spreads FCBD out over a chunk of weeks and seems like a decent idea. It encourages a trickle of consumers to return to comic-stores as opposed to a flood of folk on a single day (which isn't advisable during COVID-19 either). It is better than nothing, and it'll be nice to get some free comics each week over the Summer and early Fall. Let's see how it all shakes out.
