Free Comic Book Day

Love Free Comic Book Day! I’ve seen Cookie Monster taking care of a cookie shop but today I saw Elmo catching up with the latest in comic news! Looks like he’s excited with the new direction that Spider-man may be taking.

With a sale on at my local comic place, I picked up (in addition to the free comics) :

  • True Story Swear to God : This one goes to 11 by Tom Boland
  • Ultimate Spider-man Volume 1 by Brian Michael Bendis
  • Ultimate Spider-man Volume 2 by Brian Michael Bendis
  • Wolverine : Enemy of the State by Mark Millar

Can’t wait to get started on reading all the new comics! So much to read and so little time. Hope everyone enjoyed their Free Comic Day. Feel free to leave comments on your new additions to your collection!

    Hehe . . I went a little crazy when I saw the sale. They might still be giving out some free comics today (Sunday) . . worth checking out your local comic store.

    At Kinokuniya they were clearing out a lot of manga volumes for $5. Remember next year, it’s the first Saturday in May.

    Haven’t been here for a while and it’s great to see a showcase of so many good artists and creators! That Red Sonja piece by Sean really blew my mind.

    I completely missed Free Comic Book Day this year. Just slipped my mind…and I was in the city too! Bah.

    Why doesn’t Melbourne have a Kinokuniya? All we are stuck with is crappy expensive Borders.

    Ian :
    I loved the Red Sonja tutorial as well!
    Fantastic stuff.

    Kino was fantastic. The USM TPB were only $7 each. Wolverine (Enemy of the State) will collects 12 issues was only $23. *happy sigh*

  7. […] Fury and the Black Widow respectively. Definitely going to try to catch it this weekend, along with Free Comic Book Day on 01 May […]
