Ladies and gentlemen, that’s a wrap! Free Comic Book Day 2012 has come and gone and what an awesome day it was. Reader’s Den in Cape Town, outdid themselves by pulling off an amazing extravaganza. The day started early with people queuing before nine for free comics and a chance to get their hands on all the great comic book specials on offer.
The amount of people who came and supported the event must have surprised everyone, seems word spread that this year would be extra special. Comic book geeks and casual superhero fans were out in full force and many were costumed in their favourite hero’s attire. The number of folks who embraced their inner superhero was impressive and the quality of their attire was a sight to behold.
It was also a great day for promoting local comic book writers and artists, who were there to show that South Africa is slowly developing a small but vibrant comic book industry. Here’s to a magnificent Free Comic Book Day 2012 and may 2013 be even better.
