Thee Comic Column #83: Free Comic Book Day

CAM00340You know, I have never been to a Free Comic Book Day event before. I know that probably seems a bit incongruous with my interests and character, but really it wasn’t until about two years ago when I first started going to The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach that I learned what a big deal the industry-wide holiday had become. And when I heard a member of the ‘Bug’s staff describe the crowd and frenzy, well, I thought, “Nope. Not for me”. Crowds don’t always work for me.

FIRST: REMINDER – Today is May 4th, 2013 and that means it is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY today. Go out to your local comic shop and buy some comics! I’m kinda being a hypocrite here, because this is just about the only day a year I won’t go to a comic shop, but when your shop is as awesome as my two favorites are, Amazing Fantasy in Chicago and The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach, CA then they have lines around the block waiting to get in. That’s awesome – I love seeing the increased traffic, wish it would stay year round. I feel justified in avoiding this day however, because I go one or two times a week every other week, so I do my part.
