On the next Free Comic Book Day, May 5th 2018, DPS student work will be displayed and juried at Mile High Comics’ Jason Street Store, the very LARGEST comic book store in the entire world.
There will be one winner for each grade level, Kindergarten through fifth grade. Winners will receive wonderful comic-related gifts, of course. Every participant will receive a reward, too!
