Free comics a suc­cess

Central Leader - - News -

Wet weather didn’t stop 800 peo­ple turn­ing out to a Free Comic Book Day in One­hunga ear­lier this month.

Gotham Comics owner Jeremy Bishop says the event was a huge suc­cess and at one point there was a queue out­side the store for 45 min­utes.

“We had over 3000 comics to give away and ev­ery­thing went,” he says.

Mr Bishop says he is thank­ful to those who at­tended the day, with $490 do­nated to One­hunga Pri­mary School’s li­brary.

Guest wrestlers Kid Liger, Ja­son Burns and Liam Fury, and Corn­flake the Clown were also on hand to en­ter­tain the crowd.
