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.

 

Free Comics for A's is back!

Bring your report card in to Big B.
Get free comics. It's that simple.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

How does this work?
During the promotion, bring your report card to Big B Comics. Our staff will then 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. Kids in JK/SK can get 2 free comics per report card.

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! We recognize everyone learns differently and still want to support reading for all kids. Every kid with a report card gets 2 free comics.

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 run?
Two weeks from when report cards go out in February 2023.

I missed out this time. When will you run the promotion again?
We run the program twice a year: two weeks when midterm reports go out in February, and two weeks when final reports go out in June.

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?
You can get up to 5 free comics with your A's or up to 2 comics just for showing up with a report card.
