MOMBcast Free Comic Book Day 2012 Special


On the 5th of May, 2012, we were invited down to Forbidden Planet Southampton to record a Free Comic Book Day special!

In it, we talk A LOT about comics, especially the ones given away on Free Comic Book Day. And about lots of other things. It was ace.

The very generous folk at Forbidden Planet Southampton also gave us a whole bunch of Free Comic Book Day comics to give away, including the incredibly desirable Mousegard hardcover from Archaia – find out more about that book and the others during the show – so we’re running a competition!

To enter, send us an email to with the answer to this question:

How many individual comics, including graphic novels and collected editions/trade paperbacks, did Forbidden Planet Southampton sell on Free Comic Book Day 2012 (05/05/2012)?

The closest answer wins a bundle including one copy of every FCBD comic made available to the store. First runner up will receive another copy of the Mousegard hardcover, and further runners up will receive smaller bundles of FCBD comics.

The competition closes at 18:00 on Thursday 10th May, GMT.

Everybody is free to enter, except for employees of Forbidden Planet or MOMB, and we’ll dispatch to anywhere in the world.

(So we’re hoping the prizes will go to someone local, but we’ll abide by whoever actually wins!)

Hosted by JaneMOMB, JamesMOMB, JonMOMB and Nixsight.
Contributions by James, Lawrence (and very briefly Rose) at Forbidden Planet Southampton. We’d like to thank all the people at Forbidden Planet Southampton for having us, and their customers for putting up with us for the day.

(It is a long episode, though, and we make no apologies for the use of music in this special – it was very important to Nick and James.)
