Join us as we celebrate FREE COMIC BOOK DAY on May 6, 2017!
1. What is Free Comic Book Day?
Every first Saturday of May, comic book stores and publishers around the world give away comic singles for free to thank fans for their support and to introduce characters to new enthusiasts. This year, we are celebrating on May 6, 2017, together with Comic Odyssey and the rest of the world!

2. Can we get any comic book we want? Are manga titles included?
Comics are made and ordered especially for FCBD, and we will be setting up a table in each participating branch to showcase all the titles that are for free. A customer can choose any title from the designated free comics table. Manga titles, however, are not included in the give away.
3. How many free comics are we allowed to get?
In our Bonifacio High Street branch, together with Comic Odyssey, we will be giving away a total of three (3) free comics per customer. In other participating branches, we will be giving one (1) free comic per person.
4. What are the participating Fully Booked branches?
Our branches in Bonifacio High Street, Ayala Malls The 30th, Alabang Town Center, Century City Mall, S Maison at Conrad Hotel, Eastwood, Greenbelt 5, Glorietta, Greenhills, Gateway, Katipunan, SM Megamall, McKinley Grand Canal, SM Mall of Asia, SM North EDSA, Rockwell, Taft, Trinoma, and UP Town Center will be participating in this year’s Free Comic Book Day celebration.
Other Fully Booked branches (Cebu, CDO, and Davao) will not be giving away free comics but will have graphic novel titles on discounted sale (see number 9 for discount details).
5. Is there a purchase requirement for the free comics?
The comics that are made especially for Free Comic Book Day are absolutely free and we require no purchase for anyone who wants one. Please take note of the limit of three (3) free comics per customer at the Bonifacio High Street branch, and one (1) comic per customer at the rest of the participating branches.
6. Can I reserve a free comic?
Sorry, we will not be allowing reservations for free comics. Part of the fun is lining up, meeting fellow comic fans, and choosing a free single when you get to the table!
7. What comics will be available on the day itself?
We'll be sharing the comic covers soon, so stay tuned!

10. I woke up late! Can I still get a free comic? What time does free comic giving end?
We give out free comics until supplies last. We will try to keep our social media channels as updated as possible, but since it's going to be such a busy day, there may be a bit of a lag in the information dissemination. Follow us on Twitter and Instagram @_FullyBooked and facebook.com/fullybooked.
You can take note of the store contact numbers in this link: http://www.fullybookedonline.com/stores and call them on the day itself in case you aren’t able to line up in the morning.
See you on the 6th! #FCBD2017
