Free ComicBook Day 2019...

COMICBOOKMAN SEZ: It's Christmas for comic books once again! FCBD 2019 Sale are posted on the store's website right now AND in this newsletter which duplicates all the same FCBD details. Here are just a few reminders about the day which I can't emphasize enough:

1) Doors open at 9:00AM and the sale lasts until 6:00PM.

2) All 050418 New Shipping items are NOT part of the Free Comicbook Day Sale. Of course all this week's new comics are still 15% Off  and our Books of the Week: Dceased #1 & Laurel & Hardy #1 are still 25% Off! Also our "Buy in Bulk" supplies (and only those supplies) are also exempt from this sale.

3) Subscribers, any book(s) currently on hold for you are exempt from this sale.

4) THE FREE COMICS, as we have done every year since 2002 you are more than welcome to take 1 copy each of any or all of the fifty-three FCBD titles for this year. Parents, please be aware that many of this years titles are suitable for ALL AGES, but not all the books being given out may be suitable for your children. We always rack the ALL AGES titles across the bottom half of our FCBD rack and the MATURE & TEENS Rated titles across the top half.

5) All FCBD books are on first come/first served basis while they last. While we can't predict the future, chances are pretty good EVERYTHING will be gone by the end of the day.

And finally, I'm sure we will be passing out many "Back Issue Bucks" during the course of the sale. However, you can not use your "Bucks" in conjunction with any discounts. Enjoy the day!

ABOUT THE CHICAGO BAG TAX:
As we have every year, we ask all patrons to allow us to bag up their FREE COMICS before they exit the store on FCBD. What's new this year is the City of Chicago Bag Tax.
