As with any cultish event, Free Comic Book Day has its own codes and rituals theres more to it than simply waltzing into a store to collect your free comic book. For FCBD, you must waltz into a participating store dont run into some Borders and start screaming about any FCBD, because theyll have security radioed as soon as you breach the property line. Same with Barnes and Noble and any 7-Eleven with a decent spinning rack. Key word, then: Participating. Afterward: You are encouraged, but not required, to become a fan, and maybe fly to Comic Con in San Diego in July. Local participating stores include Caffeinated Comics Company, Mission: Comics & Art; Isotope, and Comix Experience.
