Free Comic Book Day announcements keep rolling out from comic book stores around the Bay Area. The most recent entry comes from Cape and Cowl, 1601 Clay Street in Oakland. The newest comic shop in the Bay will leverage the popularity of Free Comic Book Day, May 7, as a food drive for the Alameda County Community Food Bank.
Anyone who brings in non-perishable food for the drive will be allowed to take home double the number of free comics. Anyone who brings in more than $40 of non-perishable food items will not only quadruple the number of free comics they take home but they’ll also receive a free tattoo from Oakland’s Sacred Tattoo. Donors can choose from a number of tattoo designs which will be unveiled closer to Free Comic Book Day.
Cape and Cowl will open from 10 a.m. until 7 p.m. on FCBD.
