FCBD is the 1st Saturday in May!
Free Comic Book Day, a nationwide event, is almost here. On Saturday, May 4th we’ll be hosting FCBD at our Forest Hills shop. We have a lot going on so be sure to stop by.
For Free Comic Book Day 2019, as always, we will be offering 2 Free Official FCBD comics per person- they will be located on the main shelf and every issue will bear the FCBD logo.
We’ll also be selling our next wave of Royal merch! Our new shirt will be on sale ($15), along with a new tote ($10). The shirt is free with every purchase of $150 and the Royal Tote Bag is free with every purchase of $100.
We know so many of you love Funko Pops and for this year, we’ll have a Spin the Pop Wheel for a chance to win prizes and discounts. Any Funko Pop purchase allows you to spin the wheel. This is going to be a lot of fun and yet another activity to add to the excitement of FCBD!
We hope to see you on Saturday, May 4th for Free Comic Book Day!
Valiant’s Livewire writer is coming to Royal.
We’re very excited to announce that we’ll be having Vita Ayala at our shop this month. Ayala will be appearing on Wednesday, April 24th from 5 to 8 pm. Aside from Valiant’s Livewire, we also have a select amount of some of their past books including Batman Beyond, Suicide Squad, and Marvel Knights.
I’m personally very excited to have Vita at the shop because they wrote one of the best Supergirl issues of all time – issue #19. Supergirl meets a non-binary teen and Ayala uses the framework of a super hero story to tell a far more important story about gender, identity, and the importance of being an ally to those that society sometimes forgets to stand by. As a big fan of the Man of Steel and his Super cousin, it was this issue that I often spoke of being one of the best “Super” stories written! (Steven of Royal)
We hope to see you soon at your friendly neighborhood comic shop and please come out to support one of the most important voices in the industry right now, Vita Ayala!
