Countdown to Free Comic Book Day 2023 Begins

  • Events

This year’s Free Comic Book Day is just five weeks away! Join us on Saturday 6th 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 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, 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!

COSPLAY BONUS COMIC: Want to get a bonus sixth comic on the day? Show up to Proud Lion for FCBD in your favourite cosplay to choose an extra free comic. This needs to be an actual costume of some kind – jeans and a t-shirt aren’t going to cut it for this one!

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