Local Comic Shop Day® is on Wednesday, November 25th. With a new look!

Local Comic Shop Day® 2020 is going to be a little different than past years.
According to Marco Davanzo, Executive Director of ComicsPRO – the organization that runs Local Comic Shop Day® – the goal is still the same: “To get comic fans into their local shop for the holidays. To celebrate the local comic shop”

But Local Comic Shop Day® 2020 has a new look. First of all, it’s on a Wednesday instead of a Saturday. (The Wednesday before Thanksgiving). The organizers decided that since Wednesday is traditionally the day that new comics come out, that should be part of the celebration.

Also, in order to expand the day to ALL stores and make sure everybody gets to celebrate, the organizers have eliminated the requirement that stores have to register for the day. (Although it is still recommended that stores register so they more exposure and potentially get promo items).

LCSD titles will be announced very soon! Keep checking the website or our Facebook Page for more information.
