How to Be a Hero for the SPCA on Free Comic Book Day 6 May 2017

May 6, 2017 @ 10:00 - 16:00


WHOOOOSH!!!!! BLAM!!!!! The SPCA Sandton /Marlboro needs you! The sidekicks at Central City Comics (The newest comic book superstore to satisfy your geeky gifts and goodies needs) are here to help you BE A HERO!

Central City Comics is hosting their Be A Hero Launch Event on Free Comic Book Day on the 6th of May in support of the SPCA. Instead of just using the day to promote their store, Central City decided to take to heart what they love most about comics and the geeky lifestyle and use this day to be heroes and get other people to do the same.

“There is a superhero in all of us, we just need the courage to put on the cape.” – Superman

The Sandton/Marlboro SPCA is so close to their store that it’s the perfect way to give back. There will be stalls, food, Cosplay competitions for pets, kids and Cosplayers, discounts and FREE COMICS (T’s and C’s apply you can find these on the event page) But most of all there will be a chance to give back and support the SPCA and join the #CCHeroes community.

“The whole object of the day is to share our passion for the geek culture with new people while still helping a good cause and bringing awareness to the best sidekicks any hero could have, their pets.” – Stephen Lewis, Co-owner of Central City Comics.

Don your cape and join in a fun day for families, pets and people. Although entry is free we hope all our heroes will bring donations for the SPCA.

Where: Unit 6, Sandton Commercial Village, Cnr 7th & Marlboro Dr Sandton

Why is Central City doing this?

Central City Comics was the dream of two guys who loved their comics, movies, toys, gadgets, zombies, sci-fi epics, costumes and general geekery. It was either become superheroes or open a comics and pop culture superstore. They went with the latter and established their own Fortress of Solitude, Batcave and Millennium Falcon all rolled into one. But they never forgot their dream of being superheroes and so want to launch their store and help the helpless, the animals of the SPCA Sandton/ Marlboro area which is five minutes away from the store.

“You are going to make a difference. A lot of times it won’t be huge, it won’t be visible even. But it will matter just the same.” – Commissioner Gordon
