“COMICAVE™ at Dubai Outlet Mall to Participate in Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) with Sandbox Swapmeet



COMICAVE™, the world’s largest comics and collectibles superstore at Dubai Outlet Mall, is excited to announce its participation in Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) in addition to hosting Vol. 3 of Sandbox Swapmeet, UAE’s premier community meetup. The global event will take place on Saturday, 6th May , 2023, at the COMICAVE™ store in Dubai Outlet Mall, Dubai, UAE to promote pop culture and encourage reading in line with UAE’s drive towards literature advocacy.

As part of this international event, COMICAVE™ will be giving away free special release comics from top publishers such as Marvel, Valiant, Boom! Studios, Archie Comics, Titan Comics, Kodansha, Viz Media, and more, exclusively on this day. 

In addition to the free comics, COMICAVE™ will also host three international comic artists, Marco Santucci, Maria Laura Sanapo, and Des Taylor, who have worked for publishers such as Marvel, DC, Dynamite, and Titan Comics. Fans will have the opportunity to meet the artists, get their comics signed, and even commission original artwork. They will be joined by local artists such as Sachi Ediriweera, Leroy Fernandes and the team of Wayl, among other local talents whom the fans can interact with personally.

The event has grown organically from a small group of enthusiasts to a multi-national celebration of popular culture, not limited to just superheroes and anime/manga. 

This year’s edition will feature several activations, including a Magic The Gathering Card Game Tournament, a Pokemon Pack Unboxing Raffle, a Tamiya Race Car Tournament, a Hot Wheels Gravity Race Competition, and hourly prize raffles from the Swapmeet and Community teams. Fans can also participate in cosplay activities and photo ops.

“We are thrilled to participate in Free Comic Book Day and bring together fans of comics and popular culture from around the world. This event is a celebration of creativity and imagination, and we look forward to sharing it with our community.” said Yasmin Al Najjar , General Manager of COMICAVE™.

The FCBD event and Sandbox Swapmeet is free and open to the public, with no purchase required. Fans are encouraged to come early and stay late for a full day of activities, prizes, and fun.

COMICAVE™ is the world’s largest store of its kind as a haven for manga enthusiasts, comic book aficionados and film and TV series buffs as the unique store brings to life a gathering of pop culture icons, superheroes, merchandise, comics and manga via high-end collectibles, apparel, novelty items.
