Gainesville Comic Book Store Offers Free Comics on Saturday

Comics & Gaming on 7556 Gardner Park Drive in Gainesville is joining comic book stores across the nation in Free Comic Book Day, where participating comic book specialty shops give away comic books to customers May 3.

This year, Comics & Gaming will host DC and Marvel Comics artists Pop Mhan from 11 a.m. until 3 p.m., who will sign autographs and draw sketches to fans.

According to store owner Thomas Chillemi “It’s a great opportunity to introduce comic books to new readers, and to introduce our store to new customers.”

Free comics will feature a wide variety of notable characters and properties such as “Teen Titans GO!,” “Guardians of the Galaxy,” and the preview issue of DC Comics’ new weekly series, “The New 52: Futures End.”

“Free Comic Book Day is an annual event sponsored by industry-leading comic book companies and by local comic book retailers around the world,” he said. “Every year since 2002, Free Comic Book Day has been held to endorse literacy in the community, and to help promote awareness for locally-owned small businesses across the globe like Comics & Gaming in Gainesville.”

Comics & Gaming Gainesville, a haven for comic book and gaming fans, opened in 2004. The store carries comic books from all publishers and gaming products from Magic the Gathering, HeroClix, Pokemon, Dungeons & Dragons, and others.
