Free Comic Book Day is Saturday, May 7, and the Grand Rapids Comic-Con plans on celebrating the day by giving away two VIP tickets (a $350 value!) to our fall comic book and popular arts convention which will be held on November 11-13, at the DeVos Place in Grand Rapids.

And how can you win this set of tickets, you may be asking? All you have to do is visit one of the six stores listed below and sign up at our promotional table. You will need to scan a QR code at our table and complete a Google form page by entering your name, email address, and city/state. You may sign up once at each store you visit. There is no charge to sign up. We will draw one name among the six stores, and the winner will have two VIP tickets mailed to them. Simple as that!

You will be added to the Grand Rapids Comic-Con’s mailing list, and the Grand Rapids Comic-Con will not share your information with anybody else. The first thirty-five people signing up at each location will receive a Grand Rapids Comic-Con sticker! Free buttons available to anybody while they last!

The participating stores are the following. Our promo booths will be open until 3 pm, so make sure to sign up before we close. Some stores are open later hours so make sure to note that. Please support your local comic book store on FCBD by making a purchase.
