As a sponsor for FCBD, DK will offer FCBD fans a special edition comic book and opportunities to win prizes! Some of the prizes include graphic novels, comics (obviously), activity books, and many more. These contests will be hosted on the Free Comic Book Day Facebook page up until July.
“We are honored to be part of Free Comic Book Day again this year,” said Mindy Fichter, DK’s Associate Director of Publicity. “We understand the importance of nurturing a love of reading in children, and we think we’ve got a winner with this year’s offering of LEGO Star Wars in 100 Scenes. The book includes–you guessed it–one hundred LEGO Star Wars scenes, all of which are chock-full of action, intrigue, betrayal, battles, droids, heroes, and whole lot of surprises.”
“These sponsorships are key elements which have helped make Free Comic Book Day become the success that is has been and continues to become every year,” said FCBD spokesperson Deborah Moreland. “Due to growth of Free Comic Book Day since its inception, we can attract major sponsor who see the value in being associated with this major event and see how their sponsorship helps benefit both retailers and comic book fans.
