Free Comic Book Day 2018 @ New Wave Comics & Collectibles!

A huge THANK YOU to everyone that made this yet another aWeSoMe Free Comic Book Day! It was an incredible day and we blew through a huge amount of free comics. We gave away so many books that we’re going to increase our orders for next year by at least 25%!

Thanks again, we’re proud to be your local comic book store.
