ABOUT THE APP

Why?  You'll get access to our limited understanding of interacting with the App world!  Very limited understanding.
You'll care because this is where you will get special news and info ON FREE COMIC BOOK DAY.
Want EXTRA comics.  You need the App. Want to know what band is playing?  You want the App.  Want to know what costume Al is wearing?  You want the App.  Want to know what is on sale?  You want the app.

The Jetpack Comics Mega App.  Now in the Apple App store & Google Play for free.  Yes, allow it to send you notifications.  Yes, allow it to know your location.  Yes, let it access your microphone and speaker and YES let it make you a burrito.

For the first time in our eleven years of existence we are only 5 years behind the curve!  Get on board with the Jetpack Comics Mega App.  You won't be sorry.

 

SO YOU'RE HAVING TROUBLE LOCATING THE NOTIFICATIONS IN OUR MEGA APP?

Well here's a tip to help you

The first complaint we heard about the Jetpack Comics Mega Ap (available for iOS and soon for Android) is that you can't find the notifications after the go off screen.  Try this, pick any one of the app's sections and click on it.  Now click the menu icon (top right - it's three stacked dots).  Now you should see the notifications section.  You'll want this on Free Comic Book Day to keep up with all the things going on that day.

Cosplay at Jetpack

Cosplay by McCall's

Cosplay by McCall's is a huge leader in providing good quality, easy to follow sewing patterns for the cosplay community. Seeing a lack in the diversity of patterns available to cosplayers, McCall's has made it a point to provide a wide variety of patterns that cosplayers can alter and interchange with other patterns making the cosplay imagination, limitless! Jetpack comics is proud to have them as a sponsor for our 2nd annual Free Comic Book Day Cosplay Contest, and is happy to announce that they have donated several amazing patterns as part of the prizes for this year's contest.

SUPPORT THE ORG THAT SUPPORTS OUR FREE COMIC BOOK DAY FESTIVAL

Rochester Main Street (the people that make our Free Comic Book Day Festival possible), our favorite non-profit organization, has teamed up with TD Bank and you can help RMS earn money...and it costs you NOTHING!  If you have a TD Bank account all you have to do is ask to have it linked to The Rochester Main Street Affinity Program!  In honesty, it took my teller 10 minutes to figure out what that meant, but it happened - - eventually.  Now Rochester Main Street earns money based on the balances that I (and Jetpack Comics) carries with their bank.  It does not cost you a PENNY but it assures that TD Bank donates money to Rochester Main Street.  ...and for you it means that the Free Comic Book Day Festival continues in full force!  It takes a few minutes but it helps out your comic book community!  Do your part today!
