Cartoon Network Promotes FCBD2
By Brian Jacks
One of the top-rated networks on cable TV, Cartoon Network, has agreed to promote Free Comic Book Day 2003.
The network is placing advertising for FCBD on its popular Adult Swim website for the month of April. The ad will link to the Free Comic Book Day website so that interested browsers can learn about the event, see the comics being offered, and find a store near them.
"Comics and cartoons have long been linked in the public mind. Many of our viewers are lovers of comics, so we're happy to support this worthwhile promotion," said Dennis Adamovich, vice president of marketing for Cartoon Network. "So many of our shows originated as comics or have inspired comics themselves that it makes great sense for us to participate in Free Comic Book Day 2003."
