I’ve put together a list of what I think are some of the best comic book shops to visit on Free Comic Book Day. While not all of them have a Dallas address, I think the ones that don’t are close enough to Dallas borders and are definitely worth the extra mile.
I will be at C-BAM! comics from 1-3 p.m. on Saturday in my Capt. America get-up! Come stop by, get some free comics and visit with me!
Here are some of the best comic book shops to stop at in Dallas:
Keith’s Comics: Keith’s has several locations but if you’re doing rounds in Dallas, this location may prevail most convenient. Keith’s is known not only for carrying a large variety of comics but a large selection of unusual and fun products.
5400 E. Mockingbird Lane #120
Dallas, Texas 75206
C-BAM! Comics: A great little comic shop that has a fantastic comic book selection and an awesome staff who is willing to go out of their way to get you the comics you need! Added incentive: I’ll be there 1-3 pm!
1425 W. Buckingham Rd.
Garland, Texas 75042
Lone Star Comics: Lone Star Comics will be hosting some fun events for their FCBD guests including a costume contest, special guests and in-store broadcasts.
3100 Independence Pkwy., Ste. #318
Plano, Texas 75075
Comic Book Craze: A traditional comic book store that has a pretty large fan base. Comic Book Craze is known for hosting card tournaments and are constantly receiving new products.
1456 Belt Line Road, Suite #121
Garland, TX 75044
Zeus Comics and Collectibles: Zeus will be hosting some pretty incredible guests at their location Saturday. Actor Peter Mayhew
will be signing autographs and taking pictures with guests! Additional details about Mayhew’s appearance and other guests attending can be found here.
1334 Inwood Rd
Dallas, TX 75247
One of, if not, the biggest Half Price Books is the one off Northwest Highway. My bets are set that this store will have the biggest selection out of the Half Price stores, but prepare to get there early to beat the crowds. If you’re looking for a Half Price that will be less crowded I recommend my personal favorite store at Preston Village.
5803 E. Northwest Hwy.
Dallas, TX 75231
13388 Preston Rd.
Dallas, TX 75240
Titles that will be offered: Comic selections and editions will vary from location to location. According to FreeComicBookDay.com, some of the free titles available will include: TMNT, Bongo Comics, Kaboom!, Walking Dead, and Star Wars. A complete list can be found here.
Get to the shops early for the best selections! Hope to see you all Saturday and May the 4th be with you!
