We are really proud of our NoHo Arts District businesses that are unique and independently owned. But what makes Blastoff Comics such a gem in the NoHo arts community is its dedication to the comics art form and to charitable giving. On Saturday, May 5, Blastoff Comics in NoHo will hold their Free Comic Book Day (FCBD).
As always they’ll be giving away comics all day, both new FCBD releases as well as VINTAGE comics! Also back this year is their FCBD sale, which gives us 30% -50% off all trade paperbacks, hardcovers and new comics.
Joining them this year are some very special guests. From Humanoids, writer JERRY FRISSEN, writer of Humanoids’ FCBD release, METABARON 3.
And returning from IDW Publishing, the creators of STAR TREK: MIRROR BROKEN, DAVID TIPTON, SCOTT TIPTON and J.K. WOODWARD! The Tipton brothers and J.K. will be signing the debut issue of their much-anticipated weekly follow-up to MIRROR BROKEN, STAR TREK: THE NEXT GENERATION – THROUGH THE MIRROR!
This year Blastoff is teaming up with the good folks at FirstBook, who provide books and educational resources for children in need around the world! A portion of all proceeds from the day will go to FirstBook, and we’ll have a donation box available for those of you who’d like to help us help them a little more!
So mark your calendars:
