Forbidden Planet announces Free Comic Book Day plans

Want to discover comics and need a place to start? Then visit any branch of Forbidden Planet on 5th May – Free Comic Book Day.

Free Comic Book Day is perfect for fans and newcomers alike – if you love the idea of comics, these are titles to give you a great taste of what’s waiting for you. You can join the comics revolution – discover comics for the first time or return to the fold to see what you’ve been missing.

Forbidden Planet – the comics chain that has stores in London, Bristol and elsewhere – have bags of comics to give away that will provide you with a perfect jumping-in point, and they will be giving away loads of fantastic and cool titles to give away throughout the day.

They’ve got goody bags for kids and for grown-ups; characters ranging from The Avengers to 2000AD, from DC’s The New 52 and Star Wars to Mouse Guard and Transformers, from Buffy to Donald Duck – but get there early, as stocks are limited.

Please note that only comics marked as Free Comic Book Day titles are free of charge.
