Free Comic Book Day @ the Library!
Bookstores and libraries, just like superheroes, can do great things when they team up! Drawn to Comics, downtown Glendale's source for comic books, gaming, and collectibles, is proud to partner with the Velma Teague Library on Saturday, May 4, to bring you another exciting Free Comic Book Day experience! 

Activities for all ages will take place inside the Velma Teague Library (7010 N. 58th Ave.) from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., as well as inside the Drawn to Comics store located across the street (5801 W. Glendale Ave.) from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Enjoy local artists, select vendors, crafts, games, cosplay, and, of course, free comics galore! Comics will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis and while supplies last.

Meet comic book artists and buy custom creations from vendors. Watch live medieval combat demonstrations by the Kingdom of Umbria, right outside the library in Murphy Park. Help your kids create their own easy, geeky crafts! Pose for photo ops with local cosplayers. Feel free to wear your own costume! Since the date falls on Star Wars Day this year, expect a touch of that galaxy far, far away in our crafts, games, décor, and guest cosplayers from the 501st Legion Dune Sea Garrison.

Dating back to 2002, Free Comic Book Day is an annual event held on the first Saturday in May, during which participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away exclusive comic books for free to showcase the industry. For the past decade, Drawn to Comics has created a local festival that attracts over 2000 fans.
