Free Comic Book Day at Forbidden Planet

7 May 2019

We had a fantastic time at Free Comic Book Day

Free Comic Book Day is one of the best things about comics fandom – it’s the opportunity for companies like Forbidden Planet to bring new people into the hobby.

And it’s something we enjoy!

Thanks to the creators and publishers, we get to give away loads of free comics, and to give people a taste of what they’re all about!
