Coming Soon: Free Comic Book Day 2024!

  • Events

This year’s Free Comic Book Day is only four weeks away! Join us on Saturday 4th May for a day of free comics and fun for the whole family.

If you’ve never participated in Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) before, or just need a reminder, here’s how the event works at Proud Lion!

  • Five free comics per person. You can select up to five different comics from the tables on the day! These can only be selected from the marked FCBD titles. We ask everyone to please only take titles they think they will read, to make sure everyone has a chance to try something they like!
  • First-come, first-served basis. We don’t offer reservations on FCBD (except for pull lists, see below), so if there’s a title you absolutely want, try to get here as early as you can! Be aware there is often a queue in the morning, and it can be quite busy, but this usually settles down by the afternoon.
  • No additional comics. You are not able to collect additional comics on behalf of someone else. All customers will be limited to five titles, regardless of who they are for. (We appreciate not everyone can make it on the day, but it is not fair for comics to become unavailable for those who have attended!)
  • Reservations for pull list customers. If you have an existing, up-to-date pull list with us that includes any matching titles for at least one month before FCBD, these will be automatically put aside for you. These do not count as part of your five free titles on the day. Thank you for keeping your pull list with us!
  • Carrier bags cost 10p. Regardless of whether carrier bags have a logo or not, we charge 10p for carrier bags. We do not offer card payments under £3, so if you need a bag on the day and aren’t picking up anything else, make sure to bring some cash with you.

We’re also excited to remind you that this year’s FCBD takes place on Star Wars Day! May The Fourth Be With You! We would love to see you all in your best Star Wars cosplay, so get those costumes ready.

Stay tuned for details about this year’s comic selection in the coming weeks, and make sure to save the date!
