Plus they raffled off some graphic novels and compilations.

Comic Odyssey has been a regular participant of Free Comic Book Day, since it was introduced in the US back in 2002. In the Philippines they have been participating since 2006. Promoting not only FCBD but as well comic book artists and their local works.

Its been not only an annual event but also a get together, and meet up for comic book fans who appreciate the love for reading comics.

There are other comic shops who followed suit, but Comic Odyssey has been the fore front in promoting this yearly event. You should not miss this happening once a year every first Saturday of May.

It also help bring back the younger ones back to reading comics. That is one of the advocacy why Free Comic Book Day was founded. So most of the comics that are given away are for kids, and it surely help bring kids back to reading who have immense themselves into videogames.

For those who missed this year's FREE COMIC BOOK DAY catch it next year.
