Free Comic Book Day happens every year on the first Saturday in May. This year, that happens to be May 7th 12pm-6pm, and believe me when I say this is an event! Richmond Comix knows how to do it right too! They have sales, artists doing free sketches for kids, costumes, and of course, they have us!
Blackhole Comics will be set up at a table with FREE sketch cards of our heroes and villains, drawn by local artists! Kids can come by and get these free pieces of original art to keep, or to trade! Also, we’ll have blank sketch cards that YOU can draw your own awesome hero or villain on! That alone is pretty cool, but here is the real kicker… We’re going to have a Sketch Card Contest!!!
All the Sketch Cards turned in featuring Blackhole Comics Characters will be entered into a contest. The winner will receive a Blackhole Comics T-Shirt, Variant cover edition of Proton #1, and their card will featured here on Blackhole-Comics.com and in our next Comic! There will also be honorable mentions printed along with the winner, and you can enter as many cards as you can get your hands on! The Winner will be announced here at the end of June.
We’ll also have a limited number of Proton #0 and Blackhole Universe #1 issues for sale. Writer/creator Nick Flair will be signing copies, and hyping up his next project too! Bottom Line, Free Comic Book Day at Richmond Comix is going to be amazing and you should be there!
