I've been reading the Free Comic Book Day site over the past couple days. Maybe it's me, but it seems like a perfect time to get back into reading comics. The crap from '98 through '99 seems to have died down and some good books are popping up.

I think there are more and more quality books every year, thanks to the ease of publishing these days. NOW, getting your book seen (or at least in Previews) is a different story.

Thanks Odessasteps for that link. Too bad my local comic book shop isn't open any longer.

There is actually a website to find a local comic book store in your area. The site is located Here. If you enter your zip code it will give you places close to you.

which one was that? I remember walking to the Fantasy Shop in Maplewood every weekend about 5 or 6 years ago. Maybe even longer than that. Now that I'm old and fat and lazy, I can't imagine doing that.

Hopefully this went well for retailers across the country. I had to miss out since I was in the Grandstand at the Kentucky Derby all day. However, since I already buy around 20 books a month, I'm not the target audience. I hope retailers took advantage of this and made some new customers. Unfortunately, I didn't hear anything about it locally, and I haven't been able to get by my shop to get my books from last week yet, so I'll be interested to hear what they have to say about it.

i lived just outside south county and we had a small shop called Amazon comics. It was within walking distance from my job then and we would go up there on lunch a lot of times. It was nice and convenient.

We had a very crowded turnout, but we also had an artist and someone dressed as Batman taking polaroids.

Since I no longer work in retail, I was tired and not use to standing for 8 hours.

Just went to the comic shop again to see what the carnage did to the place... He still has some stuff out front on a free cart with "Free Comic Book Week" on it, and everyone looks tired and happy.

He let me know that it was a top 5 day in terms of sales for his store. I think it was a success!



I love it when a plan comes together

There seemed to be a decent amount of people at the Comic Book shop I am now going to. Granted it was only the third week I am back into comics and the second week at this shop, but there was a fairly constant line of people buying things in there.

I completely forgot about free comic book day until Sunday night. I went to a comic shop yesterday, and ended up wasting all my money on the Lone Wolf & Cub trade paperback, and the Astroboy one.

Last week, ESPN2's The Bottom Line (scores and sports news on the bottom of the screen) changed for no apparent reason. It used to be fast, and not take that much time. Now it takes about 10 minutes to do all the scores.
