Read on to find out all the information you will need to get your Free Comic Book showbag this year.

The legendary Kino FCBD is back with a vengeance this year – time to get decked out, strapped in, and ready for another epic ride of intergalactic proportions… On Saturday May 6th we’ll be celebrating Free Comic Book Day by giving away FREE COMICS, 20% OFF* all graphic novels & manga for Kino Card Members (10% OFF** for non-members), and getting together a day of fantastic happenings with amazing giveaways & prizes to be won!

Head here for full Kino FCBD details.


Once again, we’ll be giving away not one, but TWO Kino FCBD showbags absolutely FREE, no purchase necessary!

This year, we want to make Kino FCBD a better experience for all, so we’ll be opening our doors extra early from 8am and taking advance RSVPs for the Free Comic Book queues. This means less waiting and queueing time for everyone – woohoo!

RSVPs open from Thursday 13th April (12.00am AEST) and close Monday 24th April (9.00am AEST).
