Free Comic Book Day is an international celebration of all things comics – taking place on the first Saturday in May – tomorrow – it is a day where new titles are released and shops offer a giveaway of free issues – our libraries are taking part, courtesy of those lovely folks at Forbidden Planet
The day is perfect for both collector fanatics and those who are picking up a comic for the first time.
We will also be hosting two special events on the day –
St John’s Wood Library – make superhero masks and stick figures, 10.30am to 12pm . This free event is open to children of all ages.
Maida Vale Library – learn how to draw your own cartoon characters, 2.30pm to 4pm. Free event which is suitable for children aged 5 and over.
Queen’s Park Library – create your own mini comic, a superhero (or a super-villain!) and we’ll display the best, 2pm to 4.30pm. This free event is open to children of all ages.
Explore all this and more at one of our libraries and don’t forget to ask staff for your free comic book. We have three titles to give out, while stocks last – head on in before missing out. You’ll discover characters from the DC Universe including Superhero girls, Doctor Who, plus look out for the exclusive DC Nation!
Why not also check out the graphic novel selection? or the new release DVDs available while you are there and see what else your local Westminster library has to offer?
