Updates for Free Comic Book Day 2024 at CNJComics

Hey everyone! John D here, with some last minute stream of consciousness updates for Free Comic Book Day this year! If you haven’t read any info yet, start here first! We also got the Pole Position in this year’s Cleveland.com Free Comic Book Day Article! We’ll be giving out twelve books per person, but we encourage everyone to visit as many other events that day as possible! Enjoy all the hobby has to offer! It’s May the 4th so buy yourself a Star Wars Comic! Free Comic Book Day is from 10am to 7pm, and people start lining up earlier every year. We do expect a healthy crowd.

Hey Comic Shop Friends! It’s May! We’re in the home stretch for Free Comic Book Day now! This Saturday the 4th! Come on out 10 am to 7 pm and you can pick out 12 free comics!

The Rust Belt Monster Collective will be painting a Star Wars-themed mural outside the shop! Make sure to support the local artists and vendors that will be set up in the FCBD room! And it’s the day before my birthday! I’m taking a staycation after FCBD, so you won’t see my beautiful face in the shop until the 14th. I know it’s terrible, but you’ll manage. If you have a moment, do us a solid and vote for us for Best Comic/Collectible Shop in Scene’s Best of Cleveland 2024. It looks like a lot of contenders got pushed to the best hobby shop category if it feels like some...
