Local Comic Shop Day is an annual event organized by ComicsPRO – a trade association of North American comic book store owners.
“Local Comic Shop Day honors the lifeblood of the comic book industry, local comic book stores,” A DC representative stated recently in the announcement of its 2021 Local Comic Shop Day exclusives.
The 2021 Local Comic Shop Day will take place on Wednesday, November 24 – the second year in a row it’s taken place on a Wednesday. The event was previously being held on Saturday ala the Free Comic Book Day event founded in 2002 by ComicsPro member Joe Field.
“We moved Local Comic Shop Day from Saturday to Wednesday last year and more stores participated,” says ComicsPRO executive director Marco Davanzo in the date announcement. “Because Wednesday is the day that new comics traditionally come out, it made a lot of sense to make that move.”
