I’ve said it before, but I’ll say it again – Free Comic Book Day is one of the most creative and successful ways to attract new readers/customers into local comics shops ever conceived.

I’m kind of excited to see Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. We’ve had a few trailers already, but there’s something about the trailer shared at Comic-Con that makes this look really fantastic.
Earlier this week, we learned that J.K. Rowling has written three short tales for the Pottermore website that explores the history of magic in America. It’s all part of the promotion for the upcoming Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them movie, but it is also information that is in continuity, which makes the reading material super valuable for Harry Potter fans.

So you have read the book, and now you are eager for Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them to land in theaters. While you still have some time to go, at least you can satiate you desire by watching the first trailer, right now!
