Saturday, August 28th is not just the kick-off to the Baltimore Comic-Con or Jack "The King" Kirby's birthday but it is also "Read Comics in Public Day". The awesome folks at Third Eye Comics in Annapolis have come up with a great promotion for the event and to further spread the love of comics.
Here's some info that Third Eye posted on Facebook explaining how you can participate!
"1. Read Comics in Public, Get A Sweet Coupon! - Anyone who snaps a picture of themselves reading a comic in public between today and Saturday August 28th, and sends it to us, will receive a 20% Off On Any Trade Paperback or Hardcover coupon. It's that simple. Send us the pic of you reading one of your favorite titles in a public place, and get hooked up.
2. GET FREE COMICS on Saturday 8/28/10 and Spread the Love - We WANT you to spread the joy of comics, 'cause just like us, Third Eye Faithful, you are comic missionaries. So, on Saturday 8/28/10, pop by the shop, and let us know you plan to be doing some public reading, and you'll get hooked up with a free comic of your choosing. We'll have an assortment of some goodies, ranging from Walking Dead #1 to the first issue of Wolverine: Old Man Logan. Even if you've already read one of those, keep it handy on you when you are out and about, and that way you'll have something cool to pass off to anyone you meet.
3. Win A $50 Gift Card - The person who takes the most pictures of themselves in different public settings reading comics while rocking their Third Eye Comics t-shirt will win a $50 Gift Card! Don't have a Third Eye shirt? We've still got most sizes in stock, so c'mon by and snag one."
With a event like this, everyone wins! If you're at Comic-Con this weekend, stop by Third Eye Comics' booth and learn why they are our favorite shop!
