TNTM: Zia Comics Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) 2017

Free Comic Book Day has outgrown the confines of Zia Comics. Instead of making the event smaller, we decided on the opposite. We are making the event bigger, adding more guests, and doing more cool stuff.

Remember back in the first paragraph where we said FCBD has outgrown our store capacity? We searched high and low to find a suitable venue to host this event. We found our location at the Mesilla Valley Mall.

Zia Comics Free Comic Book Day will be held just inside the mall entrance from the movie theater. The same location where they do pics with the Easter Bunny and Santa.

No more waiting in line to come inside the store and pick out your free comics (Fire Marshal code). This bigger space allows us to have LOTS more guest artists as well. We are bringing in 2 of the current artists working on DC Comics Titans title. We are also bringing in a load of local comic book talent. We will also have cosplayers, games, and Dave & Buster’s will be giving away cool swag.

Remember if you come in costume you can’t wear a mask walking around the mall. You will be allowed to wear your mask in the Zia Comics FCBD area only.

Here is our guest list so far:

DC Comics artist Brett Booth (Backlash, Flash, Titans) will be in attendance. He will be available for custom sketches and will be selling signed prints of his work.

DC Comics artis Norm Rapmund (Teen Titans, Flash, Titans) will be in attendance. He will also be available for custom sketches and will be selling signed prints of his work.

Artist Jaime Carrillo will be doing custom sketches, selling signed prints of his work, and selling copies of his books.

Artist Ben Jones will be doing custom sketches, selling signed prints of his work, and selling copies of his self published comic, Asgard.

Artist Juan Muro will be doing custom sketches and selling signed prints of his work.

Artist Daniel Campos (Marvel & DC) will be doing custom sketches and selling signed prints of his work.

Artist Andy Perez will be doing custom sketches and selling signed prints of his work.

Ray Ramos is the creator of El Valiente, Hell’s Pass, and El Paso’s Book of the Dead: A Guide to Surviving the Zombie Holocaust.

Cosplayer Ginny Di will be in attendance in costume. She will be selling signed prints of her cosplay photos.

Cosplayer Christina Dark will be in attendance in costume. She will be selling signed prints of her cosplay photos.

The Vhe’rang Clan of Mandalorian Mercs Star Wars costuming group will be in attendance.

Military Gamer Supply will have their Artemis Spaceship Bridge simulator set up as well as other various games.

Dave and Busters of El Paso will be in attendance with lots of cool freebies and goodies.

We will have a limited number of the FCBD 2017 Funko POP! Marvel: Iron Fist PREVIEWS Exclusive Vinyl Figure (White Costume Version). This item has been allocated and quantities are limited.

And of course, FREE COMICS! (while supplies last). For a list of what comics will be given away visit http://www.freecomicbookday.com/catalog

TNTM: Zia Comics Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) 2017

Zia Comics is hosting Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) again in 2017. FCBD is always the first Saturday in May. It is a day where all participating comic book stores have special comic books available to customers at no charge, that’s right…FREE!

Zia Comics has had to allow only a set number of people in the store at a time due to fire codes. This resulted in cramped space inside the store and long waiting lines outside. We were faced with two possible solutions. 1) We could downsize the FCBD event so that it fit comfortably inside the confines of the store or 2) Find a bigger venue to host our FCBD. We opted for choice #2.

May 6, 2017, Zia Comics Free Comic Book Day will be at the Mesilla Valley Mall. This allowed us to not only not go smaller, but we actually increased all the stuff we can do for FCBD. We are bringing in two current DC Comic artists, Brett Booth & Norm Rapmund. We are bringing in a load of local talent such as Jaime Carrillo, Charles Ben Jones, Andy Perez, Dan Klimut, Juan Muro, Daniel Campo, Ray Ramos

We are bringing in cosplayers Ginny Di & Christina Dark.

Military Gamer Supply will be there with some of their gaming goodness.

Dave & Buster’s of El Paso will be there giving out all kinds of swag. I’ve heard a rumor there will be Power Cards to be had as well.

The Vhe’rang Clan of Mandalorian Mercs Star Wars costuming club will be in attendance. Hopefully some of the 501st Legion Vader’s Fist will be able to make it. The R2 Builders Club will be represented by a working R2-D2 droid.

Las Cruces Comic Con will be there with some freebies… including Friday night preview passes.

Oh yea, there will be lots and lots of FREE comics (limited to 3 per person while supplies last). Mark your calendar and hope to see you there.

TNTM: Zia Comics Free Comic Book Day 2017

Free Comic Book Day has outgrown the confines of Zia Comics. We had to find a bigger location to accommodate all the folks wanting to get free comics and see the entertainment we have for that day.

The Mesilla Valley Mall graciously agreed to host Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) 2017. They gave us a lot of room to work with and we plan on filling it all with nerdy goodness.

We are bringing in 2 current DC Comics artists. Brett Booth and Norm Rapmund are working on the Titans Rebirth title. Titans has been the focal point for most of the big happenings so far in the Rebirth initiative.

Local artists Jaime Carrillo, Ben Jones, Juan Muro, Dan Klimut, and Andy Perez will be set up to meet and greet all comic book fans.

Local cosplayers Ginny Di and Christina Dark will be there decked out in one of their amazing costumes.

Military Gamer Supply will be demoing the Virtual Reality machines, Artemis Spaceship Bridge Simulators, and general board/card games.

Dave & Buster’s of El Paso will be handing out all kinds of cool swag.

The Vhe’rang Clan of Mandalorian Mercs Star Wars costuming group will be patrolling the area to keep everyone safe. A working R2-D2 will be wheeling around also.

Oh yeah, and there will be lots of FREE COMICS!
