"We've got some really cool swag to give away". The store also will host a back-issue sale on collectible comics in addition to a sale on trade paperbacks. The event highlights independent, locally-owned comic book stores. "It's a thank you to comic readers from comic shops for supporting the business, so we're giving exclusive stories out for free on Saturday". "If somebody can't find something that interests them, I'd be very surprised".

"I've been up since six o'clock - its the second busiest day of the year for us after a few days before Christmas". For crime readers, there's the John-Hughes-meets-The-Godfather comic The Mall.

On Saturday, everyone who visits Comics on the Green, 307 N. Washington Ave., Scranton, will receive three free comics.

There will also be face painting and a store-wide sale throughout the day. "I have shoeboxes and shoeboxes of comics - like 20 of them in the last two years".

There's a plethora of comics specifically for kids; there's maybe a handful that are restricted to adults only; there's a solid array that will appeal to any age group.

The first 200 people in the door will receive free custom bags to put the day's swag provided by the TV Network and Akron Comicon.
