It's like Christmas for geeks: Free Comic Book day

This Saturday the 7th of May is Free Comic Book Day!

It's the best day to be a geek, local comic book stores hold events and attract custom supporting your local small business. It's a great day to dress up, hang out around other geeks, visit your comic book shop and catch u p on your favourite graphic novels.

There'll be free promotional items to be given out, sometimes you get special editions and one of a kind items on the day, or if you're lucky there might be an artist or writer at your local store.

To top things off in Sydney there's the added bonus of all paid comics being an additional 20% off at Kinokuniya including manga and special editions and Kings Comics will be having its annual sale to coincide.

Why not make it a day out and meet up with some of your nerdier mates after you've shopped your heart out for a drink and to compare purchases and freebies, it's one of my favourite days of the year!


  1. Hi there,
    My name is Becky Young. I am the CEO/Creator of GEN-Online (The Girls Entertainment Network). I recently came across your blog and wanted to reach out and A) say hello and B) invite you to become a part of the book that we are putting together.
    My initial idea to do a blog about geek girls has now turned into a coffee table book!!! I am putting together the book and want YOUR stories about when you first knew you were a "geek". The goal of the book is to showcase a plethora of geek girls (from all geeky backgrounds) and their passion for all things geek.
    If you would like to be involved, please email with a short paragraph about when you first knew you were a geek, a few geek things you are into and a photo!
    It's always great to meet other geek girls who share the same passions as we do!!

    I look forward to hearing from you.

    Kind regards,
    Becky Young
