What used to be just "kids' stuff" has long been respectable today: No one has to be ashamed of being a comic book fan anymore, even as an adult. It's not just the numerous comic adaptations that have changed the image of the colourful books in Germany. The sophisticated graphic novels or original stories told in comic form have also caused the popularity of this medium to rise significantly in recent years. And so it is little wonder that long queues always form in front of comic shops and bookstores when once a year it is said: today is FREE COMIC DAY!
For this campaign, many publishers and retailers from Germany, Austria and Switzerland produce special issues that fans can then take away for free. In 2017, there is a choice of thirty different titles in total, covering a wide range of comics on offer in Germany. Since usually only a certain number of booklets are given out per person (on average between 3 and 5), it is advisable to consider beforehand which booklets you would like to have. <link http: www.gratiscomictag.de comics _blank>You can find a complete list of what's on offer this year HERE
In addition to giving out free comics, some retailers have also come up with other great promotions. A look at the homepage of the comic retailer of your confidence is worthwhile in any case. <link http: www.gratiscomictag.de shops _blank>You can find a list of all participating retailers HERE
