Join Us for Free Comic Book Day! - May 6th, 2017

Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is just around the corner (May 6!), and PSCC is honored to be sponsoring and supporting events in the Coachella Valley.  Three years ago, PSCC first helped promote FCBD with Sid at Desert Oasis Comics.  This year, not only are we hosting activities with Sid, we are also working with Adrian at Interstellar Comics and Chix at Comics Asylum.  And we do not mean Desert Oasis, Interstellar, and Comic Asylum - we mean Sid, Adrian, and Chix.  You see, while others just see local comic shops, we see friends who have supported PSCC from the very beginning and who we support back.  And that is what PSCC is about: supporting friends.

In keeping with that, PSCC is proud to announce the 3rd Annual FCBD at Desert Oasis Comics.  FCBD will have top notch local comic writers & artists that we know and love.  Come out, say "hi!", and hang out!  All our artist friends like meeting new people and you will love them too!

FCBD will have activities for younger kids and well as games for the young at heart.  We will be hosting the 3rd Annual FCBD Cosplay Contest with prizes galore!  There will be local food vendors and other businesses exhibiting you can support.

FCBD will be 10AM-4PM in the parking lot of Desert Oasis Comics, 73241 HWY 111, Palm Desert.  The Cosplay Contest starts at 2PM but come early so you don't miss anything!  You never know if a light saber duel to the death might break out or The Idle Effect Podcast will interview you as a guest on their show!

But wait, there's more!  We will also be hosting giveaways with Adrian at Interstellar Comics and Chix at Comic Asylum from 10AM-2PM.  Come try a new comic book store and see all the cool collectables at Interstellar and Comic Asylum.  Along with the giveaways will be a chance to win tickets to Palm Springs Comic Con in November.  Interstellar Comics is located at 180 E Tahquitz Canyon Way on the corner of Indian Way and Tahquitz Way in downtown Palm Springs.  Comic Asylum is on 44829 San Pablo Ave., Palm Desert.

If you want to volunteer and help out, email volunteers@pscc.com and tell us you want in!  We would love to have you!  And volunteering at PSCC events earns credit towards free admission to the PSCC Comic Con in November.

So, mark May 6th down on your calendar!  No matter where you are, PSCC has something going on near you.  Come out, have some fun, see some cool costumes, and maybe discover a new comic book or artist friend or new store you can enjoy!
