Free Comic Book Day is Saturday, May 4, and the Grand Rapids Comic-Con plans on celebrating the day by giving away two three-day tickets (a $110 value!) to our annual comic book and popular arts convention which will be held on November 8-10, 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 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 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 twenty people signing up at each location will receive a Grand Rapids Comic-Con button!

The participating stores are the following. Our promo booths will be open until 3 pm unless specified otherwise, 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:
