Free comic day draws crowd

Children and adults had the chance to browse through 1000 comics at the Free Comic Book Day 2019 held in Invercargill on Saturday.

Each person was invited to take home one comic, or they could have two if they either dressed up as a character or made a donation to the Salvation Army Food Bank.

In its third year in Invercargill, the event was part of an international event held annually on the first Saturday of May.

Blythe Miller (6, right) came dressed as Batman and had fun choosing his two comics from a

range including Pokemon, Minecraft, Doctor Who and more.
