Free Comic Book Day 2018, an annual event for comic lovers of all ages, is coming to All Star Comics Melbourne this Saturday the 5th of May!

Free Comic Book Day at All Star Comics Melbourne is filled with free family fun, including show bags, a costume contest, Artist Alley, and most importantly, free comics!

Held every year on the first Saturday of the month of May, this event is an industry favourite, and is celebrated at comic book stores around the world. New to comics? You’re more than welcome here!

Come dressed as your favourite comic book character and compete to win an All Star Gift Voucher. With child and adult division winners, this is available to all!

Find local talent drawing free sketches in the Artist Alley from 10am until 5pm.

Parents rejoice! Family Only Trading commences at 9am and concludes at 10am for families with children under the age of 12. Relax and peruse the impeccable store layout without the hustle and bustle of the general public.

Regular trading hours commence at 10am and conclude at 5pm. Find the dedicated Kids Selection table downstairs for easy access, and all ages and mature readers upstairs.

This event is also collecting donations to support the Royal Children’s Hospital Charity! Feel free to drop a couple of coins in the tins. Your contribution will benefit the lives of sick children by helping to fund much needed research.
