FCBD 2016 at World's Coolest Comics

 

Geoff and Nicole participated in Free Comic Book Day today at World's Coolest Comics in Greenville, North Carolina. The store saw a record turnout for the event.  Fans were lined up before the store even opened!

"There were people lined up around the corner by 9AM when we opened.  We have been selling out of everything", Juan told Mightyville. Free Comic Book Day coincided with the release of Captain America: Civil War.  Fans turned out to meet Jeff Parker and Sandy Jarrell, pick up comics, and socialize on their way to see Captain America.   

Jeff Parker, known for his work on Aquaman and Batman '66, and Sandy Jarrell- also of Batman '66 and DC Bombshells- were on hand to sign books and draw sketches.  "I can't believe how many fans turned out in Greenville" shared Jeff Parker.  Jeff Parker, an East Carolina University Alumni and North Carolina native, now lives in Portland, Oregon and had not visited Greenville in almost 20 years.

World's Coolest Comics recently celebrated their one year anniversary.  In a time when small businesses are finding it hard to stay open, World's Coolest Comics has thrived in a town greatly in need of a comic store and a place for comic book fans to congregate.  There were balloons and a bounce house for the kids and plenty of kid friendly comics on hand to promote and recruit a new generation of comic book readers.  

Keep up with Mightyville and watch for upcoming interviews with creator Jeff Parker, as well as an in depth interview with Sara and JR the owners of World's Coolest Comics  on what it takes to make a dream come true and open their own comic book store.
