We are excited to be once again hosting the Greater Toronto Area’s largest Free Comic Book Day celebration – which this year will be happening on Saturday May 5th!
Join us as we celebrate the literary and visual art form of comic books – great reading for all ages featuring stories and art by some of the most creative people on the planet!
Our event will run from 10am-6pm at our store. We’ll be having our BIGGEST SALE OF THE YEAR – which if you’ve been to our past Free Comic Book Days, you know it’s huge! There will be raffles and prizes, giveaways, balloons for the the kids, and of course the free comics.
What makes Stadium’s Free Comic Book Day really special is the “Artist Alley” that we create in the mall. Currently we have a dozen comic book creators scheduled to attend:
MARCUS TO – Artist for DC Comics and Aspen Comics, most notably on Batwing, Huntress, Red Robin, Fathom and Soulfire.
KALMAN ANDRASOFSZKY – Artist for Marvel Comics, and many others. Recent work includes X-23, Spider-Man, Action Comics, X-Men, Captain America, Dazzler, NYX, Tomb of Dracula, Checkmate and G.I. Joe.
FEARLESS FRED KENNEDY – Toronto Radio Host on EDGE 102.1 and author of Teuton, Helios, Mike Gorbsmith and host of Teletoon at Night.
ADAM GORHAM – Illustrator on Teuton and The Vampire Conspiracy.
VINCE SUNICO – An independent artist and a member of Spent Pencils Studio. A regular on the convention circuit and artist on the QWIXOTIC web comic.

His art portfolio has impressed us at Stadium Comics and we feel Paris will impress a lot of people at our FCBD, as well as Toronto Wizard World and Fan Expo, which he’ll also be appearing at this year.
