We few, we happy few, we band of retailers;
For he today that sheds his blood trying to open mylar
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
(And comic book sellers are pretty vile)
This day shall gentle his condition
Until he curse out the customers.
And gentlemen in Comic-con, now a’bed,
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speak
That fought with us upon Free Comic Book Day.
“And then… KOREA!”
Here’s wishing a happy and safe Free Comic Book Day to Mike and all my comics friends. I’ll be writing today, but a friendly comic shop is sending me all the FCBD books so that I can write about them in my blog. It’s always fun and informative to see the choices made by publishers for this day.
Welcome to another FCBD, Mike…hope you survive the experience!
For my part, I didn’t get the Atomic Robo FCBD issue I was looking for, but I did get the Mouse Guard hardcover, Donald Duck Family, and 2000 AD. I also scored seven free comics from Jesse James Comics here in Phoenix.
Free Comic Books? What Free Comic Books?
They vanished from Hastings long before I could get any… :(
Did the “New 52″ promo have anything exclusive to it? If not, I can forget this day ever happened!
Let’s call it:
“Empty Shelf” Comic Book Day.
“Invisible” Comic Book Day.
I doubt I’ll ever see the comics that came out today…
