Every year we break store records with comics given away, attendance, and funds raised for local charities! On Free Comic Book Day everyone gets a free comic! Additional comics are one per dollar donation to the Saskatoon Friendship Inn.

The Saskatoon Friendship Inn will also be in our parking lot selling hamburgers.

Batman will be at our store all day to meet the big and small heroes of Saskatoon. Dress up to show your love!
