Free Comic Book Day at Galactic Quest Comics!

Who do you call this May 5? (All together now) Ghoooooostbusters!
Galactic Quest welcomes the Ghostbusters to Free Comic Book Day!


Buford, GA—Come for the free comics; stay for the Ghostbusters. That’s this year’s big news for Free Comic Book Day at Galactic Quest in Buford, Ga. The store will host the Georgia Ghostbusters and the Ecto-1G, a Dodge Magnum tripped out for paranormal adventures.

“We’re going big with our Ghostbusters theme this year,” said store owner Kyle Puttkammer. “We’re looking forward to an amazing turnout and we really want to give back to all the readers and fans who’ve been so generous with their patronage.”

The Georgia Ghostbusters are a group of Ghostbusters fans located all over the state of Georgia. They've taken their love of a classic comedy, a passion for building prop replicas and costuming, and have coupled it all with a desire to give something back by helping with charity events.

In addition to the Georgia Ghostbusters, and keeping with the ghosts and ghoulies theme, the store will also feature Sonya Thompson and Larry Mainland, who are zombies from AMC’s hit television show The Walking Dead.

The event will also feature the music of The South East Yukers, The Vancouver Project, and No Comment. Also featured are the following comic book creators: Bryan Mon of Tuff-Girl, Peter Culter & Mike Gordon of Tiki Zombie, and Sean Taylor of IDW.

Free Comic Book Day is a single day - the first Saturday in May each year - when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely FREE* to anyone who comes into their stores. One of the goals of Free Comic Book Day is to reach out to those individuals unfamiliar with the comic book specialty market, not to mention a comic book shop. So, every year those behind Free Comic Book Day launch a massive promotional campaign that heralds the event and spreads the good word of comics to potential readers everywhere.
