“Free Comic Book Day is a great event for the whole community. Bringing everyone together, finding books for everyone to enjoy, and seeing people of all ages—children, teens, and adults—sharing our passion for comics is incredible”, said Bill Mifsud, owner of Bill’s Bullpen. “Even if you’ve never picked up a comic book, we want to welcome everyone to Bill’s Bullpen on May 4th, because there are so many amazing comics this year and we can’t wait to share them.”
This is the 19th year Bill’s Bullpen celebrates FCBD, offering the community a fun, family-oriented event where everyone can find a comic they’ll enjoy. Including taking pictures with your favorite superheroes and a raffle with great prizes.
With awesome titles like Avengers and Spider-man, we’re sure there’s a comic book for everyone,” Mifsud continued. “Comics are a fun and enduring form of entertainment for readers of all ages to dive into as imagination comes to life. Whether it be popular comics, film, television shows, or video games, there’s something for everyone to enjoy.”
