International Free Comic Book Day - or FCBD - has generated massive interest in recent years, particularly in South Africa since it's first inception in 2002 at the Reader's Den comic book and merchandise store in Cape Town, the country's first dedicated comic book shop. This year promises to be the biggest event yet with more than 5.6 million free comic books to be made available internationally on the day of the event, May 2, 2015. Comic book publishing powerhouses, Dark Horse Comics, DC Entertainment, IDW Publishing, Image Comics and Marvel Comics are among the many sponsors offering 50 special comic book titles on the day of this year's event, which is scheduled to take place the day after the opening of Marvel’s Avengers, Age of Ultron film. Tables have also been made available to local South African artists who wish to sell their comics on the day so get onto the Reader's Den website to register as soon as possible. The Reader's Den have also also made a special announcement for cosplay aficionados in Cape Town:

Free Comic Book Day is on Saturday 2 May 2015, and cosplay is a big part of the event ! After evaluating last year's cosplay activities, we are making some changes to make the 2015 event even better...The main event will be a Cosplay Masquerade, where participants may simply enter by registering their name and character just before the event and then get a chance to pose on stage to have their official photo taken, with spot prizes given to outstanding costumes. The only rules are : basic registration on the day, costumes must be from the world of pop culture (comics, anime, gaming, movies & TV).
