Free Comic Book Day – Pasadena
May 4 @ 9:00 am - 7:00 pm PDT
MANY stores do Free Comic Book Day every first Saturday in MAY, but nobody does FCBD like Collector’s Paradise stores. We turn it into a MONTH-LONG Event with SIGNINGS, SALES and Free Comics (and FREE Graphic Novels, keep reading) Every Saturday in MAY.
This year, FCBD falls on May 4th, (May the force), which many celebrate as STAR WARS DAY, and we are combining both into a crazy celebration of all things related to comics with two GIANT SALES, plus Comic Book Artists doing FREE SKETCHES for kids (adults, please let kids get sketches, this is their day for that), at both stores.
This year, we will have the following amazing artists drawing sketches for kids:
Rick Basaldua – One of our customers’ favorite FCBD guests, and one of the sweetest people I know, Rick is a well known comic book penciler and inker, having inked Marc Silvestri, among others. In the last few years, Rick has reinvented himself as a fantastic CHIBI artist, and displays and sells his art at conventions everywhere! KIDS LOVE his super-cute versions of popular characters!
Susan Lee – is a comic book artist, fine artist, teacher and filmmaker, plus founder of Women on the Dark Side, a collection of female artists that are trying to break the stereotype of women drawing only “cute things”.
Andres Salazar – is the author of the horror western comic series Pariah, Missouri, which is a series of 3 graphic novels. Each book is ~110 pages and is a complete story, yet together they tell the complete tale of the town of Pariah. Andy is also a long time customer of our store and we are always happy to see him do cool stuff.
Don’t forget to grab a copy of your STAMP CARD when you are at the store, and stop by EVERY SATURDAY for free comics, more signings, plus, on May 25, if you have all 4 stamps, a FREE GRAPHIC NOVEL (from a special selection, generously donated by our sponsor publishers).
