Despite – or because – Free Comic Book Day restricted their free comic books to fifty titles last year, orders were up to 6 million in total for 2016.
But at ComicsPRO, Diamond told retailers that this year – with 52 titles for Free Comic Book Day – orders had been placed for over 5.3 million copies, a similar figure to 2015.
That’s a significant drop. No reason for the stop was given to retailers at the event. But they stated that 2100 stores were participating, whereas last year they announced it as 2300.
Have 200 stores stopped doing Free Comic Book Day? Are they the stores that closed?
