Started way back in 2002 to help Comic shops and the industry help gain new interest in the hobby and the medium Free Comic Book Day, or FCBD, has been an annual nerdfest for well over a decade now. I wish I could say I was there for the first one, but alas I was not, I'm not sure what year I finally made it to a FCBD event, but even when I was living in Haines, Alaska, I still made it to a participating shop. And why not, who doesn't love free comics? And some of the books even get valuable.
This year I hit up both Bosco's locations in Anchorage and made my wife go with me. Bosco's policy is you get 5 books per person, so taking my wife along we get 10! And hitting both stores means I get 20, or more importantly most of the books I want.
The one I was most interested in getting was the free Walking Dead comic with new stories and it was stated that none of the stories in the free issue will be put in the trade paperbacks, plus the Walking Dead is still insanely hot. I ended up picking up a copy in each location, but to be honest the store had tons of copies so it's not like this comic was short printed.
Hermes Press offers two digitally remaster Sunday insert stories from the original Sci-Fi good guy.
And there you go. A nice haul if I do say so myself. Ok now back to baseball cards.
