Happy Free Comic Book Day!

5 May

Today is another one of those deliciously geeky holidays I talked about yesterday – Free Comic Book Day! Comic book stores around the country are giving away select comic books for free. Tony, the Dave’s (close friends of ours and equally in love with all things nerdy) and myself couldn’t resist, so headed to our friendly neighbourhood comic book store!

Timemasters, where I bought my first comic, my first pack of World of Warcraft trading cards, AND my first Dungeons and Dragons collectible figurine!

It was pretty packed, and we spent our first 20 minutes browsing (read: salivating) over all the comics and graphic novels we just can’t afford. I have my eyes now on The Crow and a couple different Iron Man series, as well as a peaked interest in the Game of Thrones trading card game. Tony found a couple sets of G.I. Joe figures that he used to play with as a kid, but the price tags prevented an impulse buy for each of us.

next time, Joe.

We then turned to the freebies. There were about 20 different titles, and each customer was allowed 5 free copies. A bonus of being married? We were able to get 10 different titles for the house! They include: Voltron Force, Star Wars/Serenity, Mega Man, The Guild, Witchblade, My Favorite Martian, The Avengers: Age of Ultron, Bongo, Sonic the Hedgehog, and The Intrinsic.

NICE!

Until next time!

    5 each?? Man, I was allowed one each at both of the stores I went to. :(

      That’s too bad! Yeah, we got lucky, but were in a smaller town so maybe that’s why they’re a little more generous :) what did you choose?

    Just discovered this from a Guild RT. Yep, geek couple power lets you get twice as much. ;) We got most of these but didn’t even see a store with a Witchblade, My Favorite Martian, or the Intrinsic. Nice haul!
