Supporting Literacy & Rewarding Kids
Free Comics for A's
We believe strongly that literacy is an essential skill that needs to be nurtured at a young age.
Every year at report card time we do our part to support literacy with our Comics for A's program.
Bring your report card to Big B Comics and we will give you a free comic book for every A or improved grade on it. How cool is that?
Frequently Asked Questions
How does this work?
Simply bring your report card into your local Big B Comics. Once here our staff will show you the large selection of comics you have to choose from.
What’s the catch?
There really isn’t one! We just want to encourage kids to work hard at school and learn to love reading. We think comics are a perfect gateway.
Do kindergarten report cards count?
Absolutely! We don’t let a little thing like not having a letter or percentage grade stop us from giving away comics to these hardworking kids.
I don’t have any A’s on my report card, can I still get anything?
If you didn't get any A's, don't sweat! At the end of the school year in June we also reward kids who improve in any subject a full grade. So if you turn a C from February into a B in June you will get a free comic.
Do A minuses and percentages count?
Of course! An A- is still an A and anything above 80% is considered an A
When does this offer begin?
As soon as report cards go out in June, 2017.
How long does the program run?
The last day to redeem free comics will be July 31st, 2017
I’m in university or college, does it still count for me?
No, sorry. The program applies to students from JK to grade 12.
What’s the maximum number of free comics I can get?
That really depends on the report card, but generally there are 7-9 subjects on a report card. Because we give away a comic for every subject in which a student receives an A, you are only limited by the number of subjects you have.
