I heard about Free Comic Day online and decided it was worth checking out. Other than that, I really didn't know what to expect. When we got there, we were told we could each pick out three comics. We stood in line for maybe five to ten minutes before we got to the tables. They had the comics all grouped by ratings, G, PG, etcetera. As a parent, I really appreciated this. The kids picked out which comics they wanted, easy. After we got our comics, we also got to pick out some pins and stickers and we were done.
Below are photos of the comics that my children picked out. If you haven't been in a comic store for a while, I think you might be surprised with the selections.
This is a two story comic with The Smurfs on one side and Tinker Bell on the opposite.
Here are two of the comics my son picked out, Sonic The Hedgehog and Voltron. Anyone one remember the TV cartoon Voltron?
These two comics came with multiple comic stories in them. Owly and Friends also featured "Johhny Boo Does Something" and "Sprout Pigs Out". Mouse Guard is a hard cover book featuring four different comics. Remember the movie Labyrinth with David Bowie? There's a comic about Hoggle and the worm from Labyrinth in Mouse Guard.
Did any of you attend Free Comic Book Day? What did you get?
