No Free Comic Book Day is ever complete without a stop to where it all began, Flying Colors Comics in Concord. This holiday was the brain child of owner Joe Field, who proposed the idea in the August 2001 issue of Comics & Games Retailer magazine. So basically one could say Free Comic Book Day is a Bay Area holiday at heart.
