Join us for Free Comic Book Day. Every customer gets 2 free comic books (you must choose different titles. We don’t want one person scooping up 10 copies of the Secret Wars books). If you have at least 6 comic pulls with us, you get one more book for each pull. You get 1 book for Preferred Customer Status, 1 for each two comics you buy off the rack, 2 if you come in costume, 2 for each graphic novel, 1 for each 5 cans of usable food, and 1 for each stamp you earn on your Castle Cards. Buy at least $10 worth of art from Capybara Ink and get another free comic.
