There’s no doubt that with the Avengers: Endgame out in cinemas, we’ve all dived back into our comic book stashes and wrapped ourselves in a warm blanket of nostalgia and superheroes. And good news, there’s an even bigger and better event on the horizon to fuel your comic cravings.

Enter Kinokuniya (if you know anything about Sydney book digs, you’ll know this Japanese-based gem is the place to go for all things magazines, graphic novels and manga). It’s the one place in Sydney this weekend that’s actually giving away comic books… for free. More specifically, 13,000 copies of them.

The mass giveaway is all in celebration of Free Comic Book Day, which is officially happening this Saturday, and there’ll also be a heap of activities, discounts, cosplay and prize offerings from Madman Entertainment, Event Cinemas, Supanova Pop Culture & Gaming and SMASH. 

You’ll also be able to nab a free tote show bag on entry filled with The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes and Witch Hat Atelier, discount vouchers from Event Cinemas and then, because the limit does not exist, two more free comics of your choice.
