Free Comic Book Day 2016 (FCBD)


                                       

I like free comic book day it exposes me to a lot of things,people and places.The first store I visited gave away 10 pieces last year but due to large crowd and high demand this event draws in they had to limit it to 6 pieces this year they did some random raffle draws all throughout the day I didn't win any free poster this time around but I did manage to get a lot of fun stuff. Lots of kids and some cosplayers.Watch the video above to see what I got ^_^

The second store I went to they're doing some card games & karaoke. Not a lot of people compare to the first one (approximately 30 people inside when I got there) only a few free comics remaining mostly previews mayhaps a lot of people visited earlier in the morning anyway, they have a lot of pop figures,board and card games.I got some comics over there as well that I didn't see in the first one and they're a bit more on the pricier side.I noticed they a more organized/sorted collection (tabs all over) and surprisingly a much larger space it was my first time there.

Overall experience this is my kind of fun scavenger kind of madness. I love buying affordable comics,supporting book shops and getting freebies(who doesn't right?)

  1. Uh! I wanted so bad to participate in this event yesterday May 7 but unfortunately where I live they don't have that many comic bookstores. Kind of sad since I even saw this trending on Twitter.

    That's great you could do it, Kim. I bet it was great.

    1. Sorry for the late reply anyway, that was my dilemma before I'm glad some comic bookstores finally offered such opportunity near me although still a bit far away like 1 hour which isn't that bad considering I like the adventure aspect of it haha! I waited in line for 40 mins or so since the store was a bit small I usually read an ebook as I wait or people watch then once inside after getting the freebies I love Scavenging from the unsorted pile of old comics that was my favorite part truly a blast! I hope you could experience such a rush over at your area soon enough! thanks for dropping by your thoughtful comment was truly appreciated! XOXO
