Free Comic Book Day

Today marks the 16th annual Free Comic Book Day around the world and Okanagan Sports Cards and Comics is participating right here in Kelowna.

Owner, Gary Perrodou says he has over 30 titles and 1,000 comics to give out, including DC and Marvel.

“They usually introduce a new title, the beginning of a new story line. They actually make them collectable and they’re only available on Free Comic Book Day”

He allows each person to pick to three comics of their choice, which cannot be the same, to keep it fair for everyone.

“This is a launch day for a lot of the companies to continue new storylines, so if you miss that then you’ve kind of missed the first issue so to speak,” said Perrodou.
