LIVINGSTON, NJ - On Saturday, Worldwide Free Comic Book Day came to Livingston at New World Manga Comics Cards & Games--with comics for all ages and a free day of fun for the whole family. Everyone who visited New World Manga Comics Cards & Games on Saturday received FOUR free comics (while supplies lasted). They dressed up as their favorite Comic, Anime, or Manga characters and had their photos taken to enter the store's costume contest for a chance to win a complete set of all sixty FCBD comics!
Livingston' New World Manga was one of thousands of comic book shops around the world celebrating the biggest day in the comic book industry and comic art form. On Free Comic Book Day, over 4.6 million comic books were given away by participating stores, introducing as many people as possible to the wonders of comic books.
“The wide array of comic books being published today ensures that readers of all ages—children, teens, and adults—can find something appropriate that will stir their imaginations,” said Co-Owner of New World Manga Lionel Ruland.
Celebrating its thirteenth year, Free Comic Book Day has proven to be a smashing success, spreading the word that comics are a terrific read. “Even if you have never picked up a comic book, stop into New World Manga, because you never know what you will end up finding,” added Ruland.
"We at New World Manga want to spread the word that comics are perfect for today’s times," Ruland continued. "Comic books and graphic novels are considered a hot form of entertainment, that are fun and a smart pick for readers to dive into as imagination comes to life with the turn of every page.” Comic Books have propelled to the front ranks of pop culture, many being adapted into movies. The first Saturday of May has been and will continue being a big day in the comic book world.”
