    Free comic book day is simply amazing! I have no idea why I only heard about it 2 years ago when it’s been going on for 10 years!

    The associated movie this year is The Avengers (FCBD was first held on May 4th, 2002, something I found funny). Last year it was Thor, and we got The Mighty Thor, detailing his life in the comic-book world (which just made the movie Thor even better because I got all the references). I wonder if we'll get a book like that for The Avengers, detailing their formation, etc. That would be cool.

    The event where the fans are separated from the true fans.

    I've loved FCBD for years! Always a highlight of the calendar.
    Great opportunity to sample some books you might not otherwise buy, and also to get some cool exclusive stories featuring your favourite characters.

    I always get my books from my local independent comic book store. They have no limitations on the number of books you can take.

    But my local branch of FP simply doesn't do FCBD. They say it's too much hassle. Spoilsports!

    I have to make a special trip, and outside of Superman and Atomic Robo nothing really gets my attention. No Mignola freebie this year.
    Tomorrow is the most important thing in life. Comes into us at midnight very clean. It's perfect when it arrives and it puts itself in our hands. It hopes we've learned something from yesterday.
