LILAC CITY GRILLE HAS MORE THAN JUST COMIC BOOKS FOR YOU ON FREE COMIC BOOK DAY

They may not be on the map but visit them and get a comic book and more. Our long time friends at the Lilac City Grille ARE part of the Free Comic Book Day businesses but they won't be on your map. Make sure you swing by and visit them, grab a bite to eat, get your free comic book and get a bonus if you're one of the early visitors. That's right, Lilac City Grille not only has comic books but they've got a limited supply of cool Marvel & DC collectibles to give-away as well. Just like all the other stops, every group gets one free comic book but the earliest of visitors will get to choose an additional bonus item. Supply is limited and there is a one per group limit so you better get to Lilac City Grille early.  Once the collectibles are gone, they are gone. Located at 103 North Main Street, stop in and enjoy a bit to eat today.   LIKE THEM ON FACEBOOK

How FCBD Helps Children in Hospitals

On May 5th Children who are in hospitals across the US that have signed up with Free Comic Book Day For Children in Hospitals will not only receive a free comic book like the ones handed out at the comic book stores on Free Comic Book Day, but will also receive Fly Like An Eagle Comic , written by John Wilcox. Fly Like An Eagle comic was not just a comic book project under Rise Above Social Issues Foundation but a story designed to be a project for the children who are in hospitals. This 12 page story requires the children to be an inker, colorist and cover artist! The children who find themselves in the hospitals will hopefully feel included in Free Comic book day as well as feeling a sense of normalcy for a day - I do hope Free Comic Book Day For Children in Hospitals will make a difference. On May 5th Nancy Silberkleit co-CEO of Archie Comics will be at a John Hopkins Children’s Hospital in Florida skyping into other hospitals speaking on How Comic Books are created!!
