But once a year, on the first Saturday in May, Vault of Midnight joins forces with local comic shops worldwide to offer free comic books to the masses. We aim to spread the word about everything the comic book medium has to offer by sharing our favorite titles in an approachable and risk-free way!
Step right up, ladies and gentlemen, boys and girls - get ready for the magic, get ready for the fun, and get ready for the FREE COMICS, ‘cause it’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! Try your hand at our grand draw wall! Witness the wizard of screen-printing, Scott Boyink, print exclusive t-shirts in front of your eyes! Listen to the magnificent beats of DJ RX78! Marvel at our spectacular cosplay contest! Come one, come all to the greatest comic book show in downtown Detroit – only at Vault of Midnight!
Ann Arbor loves Free Comic Book Day. Every year comic book fans from all over South Eastern Michigan travel to Ann Arbor on a sacred yearly pilgrimage of nerdy enlightenment. This year travelers can expect even more amazing cosplay, trivia, high-fives, and FREE comics than ever before. Vault Staff will be constructing a Great Draw Wall to be doodled upon by the masses and absolutely anyone can enter our cosplay contest for the chance to win wealth and glory in abundance.
Free Comic Book Day merriment will literally be spilling out our front door and into the streets with a sidewalk festival from 10a-3p. Prepare your mind and body for free comics, trivia, face painting, and PRIZES! Plus, challenge your friends to a game of Giant Connect Four - just like regular Connect Four, but much, much bigger.
