Getting Excited for Free Comic Book Day 2006!

This will be the 5th nation-wide Free Comic Book day, and our third one here at Neptune (since we've only been open that long). It is always a ton of fun!! Mark it in your callendar now, so we will see you then!

Images for this year's titles can be found online at the Free Comic Book Day website,

Also on tap for Free Comic Book Day: Viz Media will publish Viz Samplers for manga lovers; WizKids LLC will create a Marvel HeroClix Wolverine Figure for players of its popular collectible Miniatures Game; and Diamond Select Toys & Collectibles will give toy collectors an exciting new addition with its Stargate Jack O'Neil Action Figure from the highly anticipated toy line based on the hit Sci Fi Channel series. Depending upon the costs for these items we will try to have some limited quantites available, and some of these "also on tap" items may have a small cost (no, we DON'T get ANY of this stuff free, not even the comics).

Once again we will collect food for the Waukesha Food Pantry on this day. For those of you who don't know how it works, every person who comes for Free Comic Book Day can choose ONE free comic book. Then, if you want additional comics you just bring in non-perishable food items. For every item you bring in you can choose an additional comic book. We usually also have in-store sales on other items too. I can't make ANY promise on this just yet, but we are also trying to get an artist in for a signing that day too.
