Are you interested in participating in our Artists Alley? Download the Artist Alley Application and Guidelines, as well as the Vendor License Agreement, and submit them to the library for consideration. We have limited space to feature artists at our event and cannot guarantee that all applicants will receive a space. Application deadline is Monday, April 24, 2017.

 

Panels


Join us for a variety of panels about comics, fan culture, and meet an author! These panels are free, open to all ages, and no registration is required. Information about the day's panels will be updated as we get closer to PuliCon.
   

Free Comic Books

 

Time TBA

 
Stop by the Library and choose from a wide selection of comics for Free Comic Book Day. We'll have a little something for everyone. While we can't guarantee that we'll have every title available, click here to see a list of the comics that publishers are releasing for this year's event.

Treat your inner comic book fan to series like Wonder Woman, Legend of Zelda, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Doctor Who, Attack on Titan, Marvel's Secret Empire, or Rick and Morty, just to name a few of the titles we’ll have available. Supplies are limited, so visit us early for the best selection.

Free Comic Book Day Partner


This event is generously sponsored by the Friends of the Puyallup Public Library. We partner with Fantasium Comics (1500 South 336th Street, Suite 12A, Federal Way, WA 98003). Visit the Free Comic Book Day to learn more.

The first Free Comic Book Day was held in 2002 and the event has continued to grow over the years. We are proud to take part in this program, which gives away millions of comic books to interested readers every year.

The comic format can encourage readers of all ages and interests, providing quality literature as well as a gateway for reluctant readers. Comics can cross cultural boundaries in a way that most prose works do not. The Puyallup Public Library offers comic collections for children, teens, and adults, as well as titles studying the value of reading comics.
