Free Comic Book Day Sponsorship

Free Comic Book Day is the BIGGEST day of the Comic Book Year (well… Avengers 2 is pretty freakin big too) but we need your help! This year, CBH is putting a call out to all of our loving neighbors to ask you to help with the success of one of the biggest Family events in Newark.

Captain Blue Hen Comics is celebrating its 15th FREE COMIC BOOK DAY and we would love to make YOU a big part of our party (just like Disney—we like to think big!).

Captain Blue Hen Comics (CBH) is the premiere comic book retail store in Delaware. Now in our 34th   year, our store is one of the longest lasting and most loved comic shops in the area, attracting visitors every day from the surrounding states as well as our home turf. Over the years, CBH has worked with many of the local schools and library programs all year long to help promote the joy of reading and are always looking for more ways to share our expertise and knowledge.

Our annual Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) celebration at CBH attracted more than a two thousand visitors—many of whom had never been in a comic shop before – in 2014. Many families spent the day in Newark enjoying all that Main Street has to offer. For 2015, we have over 10 real comic book artists attending, face painting, how to draw classes, activities all day long, a huge canned food drive, and collect donations for bonus comics to help support the Newark Arts Alliance and are expecting our biggest turn out yet.

This year, we want you to be part of the action. In the past, CBH has handled all of the details in organizing and running an event this large. But FCBD  is big and growing beyond our expectations every year. We love this event and what it brings to the Newark Community but, we need your help. FCBD requires a ton of additional accommodations, including additional public restrooms, tents, food / water, and staff for the day. All of our artists, costumed superheroes, and staff are volunteering their time to help make this event the hit that it is. Your sponsorship would help grow the success of our Free Comic Book Day festivities for the Newark community and young readers.

$1,000 – Your name, description, and logo on our ads, fliers, promos and a social media blasts, your fliers or promotional material distributed at FCBD, and a dedicated 10×10′ spot for display and our serious brownie points. We may even get Darth Vader to mention you on one of our videos from the day. How cool is Darth Vader?!
