Over 50 different Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) comics will be available that day. From 10am to 8pm, on the first Saturday in May, you can choose up to 5 different comics for free. No gimmicks, no tricks, no strings attached. Like every year, there are comics for every different age, taste, and reading level.

                Green Brain Comics always adds a lot of special twists.  Bring a canned food item to donate to Gleaners Community Food Bank and get an extra FCBD comic, bring a used cell phone to donate to Cell Phones for Soldiers and get an extra FCBD comic. Show up in costume, and get another FCBD comic.

                Several local comic creators will be exhibiting during the event, including special guest Jay Fosgitt, artist of the National Cartoonist Society nominated comic book “Bodie Troll”. Fosgitt has created a special “Green Brain Comics” custom cover for the FCBD Bodie Troll comic. This comic will only be available during FCBD 2014.

                Add in a special appearance and proclamation by Dearborn Mayor John B. O’Reilly, live DJ sets, courtesy of Underground Resistance, live musical guests courtesy of Alter Ego Management, and you’re looking at the most dynamic Free Comic Book Day Celebration in the Detroit area.
