Cosmic Comics in Johannesburg is celebrating Free Comic Book Day with a large selection of special offers and freebies, as well as lucky draws and over 3000 comics to hand out for free, with cosplayers receiving extra comics.

The offers include:

• The first person at the door will get an Artfx 1/6 scale Green Lantern figure for free valued at R2450 (so you should probably already be there).

• The first 10 people to spend R500 or more will receive a selected Artfx+ figure.

• The first 100 people in the queue will receive a free Spider-Man Homecoming movie poster and a cookie from Magnolia.

• FCBD Iron Fist Pop and Lil Bombshells Wonder Woman will be on sale in limited quantities.

• Gift vouchers and lucky draws.

• A cosplay competition with a first prize of a store voucher worth R1000.

• A kids' cosplay competition.

• Queue entertainment thanks to Tapout Academy (MMA and boxing coaches) and sustenance available from Magnolia Bake & Cake, which will be at the event from 06:00 selling coffee, hot chocolate, and muffins. It will also be raffling a cake or cupcakes of customer's choice to the value of R1000.

• Woodrock Animal Sanctuary will be doing raffles and lucky draws, and taking donations of all types of cat food or money (every R49 collected means an animal can be vaccinated).
