Official Press Release
Once again, Brave New World Comics in Newhall is proud to announce their participation in the worldwide comic book holiday event known as Free Comic Book Day ~ Saturday, May 2nd. With even more free comics to choose from and fun things to do, this Free Comic Book Day promises to be the biggest yet!
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is exactly what it sounds like: An annual international event that aims to put a free comic book into the hands of anyone that wants to give this uniquely American art form a try. Young or old, new readers or eager readers, everyone who visits Brave New World on Saturday May 2nd will leave with some of comics’ greatest adventures. ABSOLUTELY FREE! With super-hero and adventure stories from GREEN LANTERN, WOLVERINE, THE AVENGERS, GI JOE and THE TRANSFORMERS, family favorites like ARCHIE COMICS, NANCY, and SONIC THE HEDGEHOG comedy stories from THE SIMPSONS and OWLY, and even the all new DISNEY & PIXAR’S CARS comics; Brave New World feels confident that they have something for everyone.
Along with some awesome surprises and thousands of free comics to give away, Brave New World is also offering Free Art Classes, taught by professional animators and comic book artists in their loft classroom, as well as FREE DEMOS of the new MMORPG game, Freaky Creatures all day. Comic book creators, artists, and writers will also be on hand to sign their latest works, talk about the comics that they have helped create, and possibly even step in to teach a class or two. There will also be exciting FREE photo opportunities with your favorite Star Wars characters, as the 501st Storm Trooper Squadron’s Los Angeles Garrison entertains the crowds with replica costumes. “But, don’t sleep in too late,” warned Atom!, Brave New World’s proprietor of pugnacious punctuation, “if Free Comic Book Day 8 is anything like the first seven, the free comics could run out before the crowd does….but the fun is here all day!”
Brave New World Comics is located in the yellow Victoria Center, at 22722 Lyons Avenue (corner of Lyons Ave. and Chestnut St.), in Newhall. Brave New World will open its doors at 11am on Free Comic Book Day, but there is usually a line by 9am for this event.
