Frequently Asked Questions:
1. What is Free Comic Book Day?
Every first Saturday of May, comic book stores and publishers around the world give away comic singles for free to thank fans for their support and to introduce characters to new enthusiasts. This year, we are celebrating the Free Comic Book Day on May 7, 2016, together with Comic Odyssey and the rest of the world!
Comics are made and ordered especially for FCBD, and we will be setting up a table in each participating branch to showcase all the titles that are for free. A customer can choose any title from the designated free comics table. Manga titles, however, are not included in the give away.

In Fully Booked BGC branch, together with Comic Odyssey, they will be giving away a total of three (3) free comics per customer. In other participating branches, they're giving one (1) free comic per person.
