It’s like a mini Supanova but with more free stuff
Sydney will celebrate Free Comic Book Day with giveaways, cosplay and comic book madness at Kinokuniya. Established in the United States in 2002, this international day of pop-culture sees massive giveaways at participating bookstores in honour of all your favourite comic characters, artists and authors.
At Kinokuniya, there’ll be 15,000 comic books up for grabs. To call dibs, register for a comic book show bag before April 23 – otherwise you’ll be getting in line from midday to score your bounty. You can get your prizes signed or commission a sketch by comic book artists at the Artists Alley from 11am-4pm.
If you fancy yourself more of a wordsmith, you’ll probably want to book in for the Q&A with comic book writer Marjorie Liu, who’s known for her extensive work with Marvel. Or, show off your cosplay attire from 11am.
