Free Comic Book Day 2012 @ Little Island Comics
Featuring Andy Runton (Owly) and Fabio Moon (Serenity)
Saturday, May 5th, 2012, Noon-5pm
@ Little Island  Comics, 742 Bathurst

Free Comic Book Day is an annual event in the comics industry where stores offer free comic books to entice you into shopping with them on a regular basis! The Free Comic Books are specially selected by publishers (Not Every Comic Book Is Free) and then store can decide what to give away. Seeing as this is Little Island’s first year, we definitely wanted to participate and start a tradition, and what better way to kick it off than with two awesome creator signings!

The Details:

- Free Comic Book Day events will run from Noon to 5pm.
- Everyone who attends is welcome to select up to 4 free comics from our selection!
- Only 25 people will be allowed in the store at a time (we’re just a Little Island after all!) so there might be lining-up-outside involved. Bring an umbrella just in case!

The Creators: 

- 12pm-2pm: Meet Fabio Moon! Fabio is the artist of series including Daytripper, BPRD, and Casanova (for grown-ups). This year Fabio Moon is the illustrating the new SERENITY story by Zach Whedon (Joss Whedon’s brother) in the FCBD Star Wars / Serenity Flip Book!

- 3pm-4pm: Meet Andy Runton! Andy Runton is the creator of the amazing Owly comics, and this year he’s illustrating an all-new OWLY story in the Top Shelf Kids Club Comic!

About Little Island Comics

Little Island Comics was the first comic book store for kids in the whole world!

Unfortunately, due to our entire city block being torn down by a condo developer, Little Island Comics closed up shop on December 30th, 2016. Open for more than five years, Little Island Comics served thousands of enthusiastic young readers, grateful parents, and cool aunts and uncles looking for the perfect gift.

If you're looking to continue buying kids comics and graphic novels and picture books from an independent retailer in Toronto, please consider shopping at Page & Panel: The TCAF Shop, 789 Yonge Street, as it has a marvelous selection of books for young people. Our big-brother store, The Beguiling Books & Art, is now located at 319 College Street. Beguiling Library Services, and the former staff of Little Island Comics, can be reached at

We're very proud of all we were able to accomplish, and we greatly appreciate everyone who shopped with us, hosted or attended an event at our shop, or generally just made the store a great place to be.
