Free Comic Book Day is celebrated every year by participating comic book shops, book stores, and libraries. Baker County Library District is proud to bring this event to Baker County for the first time.

Lootcrate prizes may be won by those dressed in a costume or who check out a graphic novel from the library's growing collection.


Alkali Layke got her start in Cosplay after appearing at a convention as a Special Effects Makeup artist. She still does special effects for short films and commercials when not jet-setting across the country to geekfests and comic conventions.

Ally considers herself an “equal opportunity geek”, because she regularly geeks out on a multitude of fandoms. Although she prides herself on her 90’s Saturday cartoon knowledge, she’s also a HUGE Star Wars fan, loves X-Men, Game of Thrones, Batman, and anything on the SyFy channel.

Ally’s most popular cosplays include WonderFETT (a mashup of BobaFett and WonderWoman), Harley Quinn, Dark Phoenix, SheRa Princess of Power, HarleyPOOL (another mashup), and many more! She is also the proud LadyBOSS of a company called Level40Two, a monthly Cosplay Fan Box.

This event is made possible by Friends of Baker County Library, Baker County Library District, and Captain Comics of Boise, Idaho.
