Retailers Make 10th Annual FCBD a Comic Celebration to Remember!
A lot has to happen every year for Free Comic Book Day to be possible, and without the efforts of the Free Comic Book Day Committee, Diamond's staff, FCBD’s Sponsors, and you, our valued retailers, we could not put free comics in the hands of eager fans and new, prospective customers. That is always the goal of FCBD, and thanks to your hard work, in 2011 we once again accomplished it.
From the feedback received so far from retailers, consumers, and industry professionals, it seems that in many shops around the world, Free Comic Book Day was an even bigger event this year that delivered in terms of sales, traffic, and fun. Free comics were quickly claimed, banners and other promo items were used to attract additional attention to shops, and creator signings, character appearances, and other special events made FCBD 2011 a true celebration of the books and culture we all love.
Speaking just for myself, FCBD was a huge success for Planet X! We would like to thank all of our subscribers and valued customers for making the day a victory. Special thanks to all who took part in our Costume Contest and Thor Movie Premiere Tie-in. Without you guys, there would be no Planet X! See you all next year!
