So, yeah, we're stoked. Due to last minute plans, I missed Tim Bradstreet who was in town last weekend. I was bummed about that because Tim is a helluva nice guy and fun to talk to.

Well, that does not happen here.

 

There's a comic store giving away some free comics (ie their really bad back catalogue).

But all their non-new release titles are 25% off.

And as many stars as a London night.

Well, this Zeus thing is rather recent, just last year and this year, but I love it. Last year, I met Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa and we talked about Nightcrawler and Darick Robertson--the two really did well for that title, so it's a shame it didn't sell.

 

Here's the link. Tell me who I shouldn't miss!

Big name comic creators don't bother to come to Flint.

 

Our local store is having an 80% off everything in the store $4.00 and under, 50% off everything else sale. So, I'm pretty excited about that.

 

What Free Comics are they giving out this year? Anyone have a list?

CAPTAIN OBVIOUS?! The signal has been lit up! :lol:

 

It's a day where comic book companies send out sample comics to comic book stores who give these sample comics away for free.

 

The companies obviously do not send out enough, as the store I went to was completely out of their free comics!

NO ONE in Flint buys D&Q or Fantagraphics comics except ME! I pay LOTS of money for their books! Yet, when they send out free comics, everyone is happy to take D&Q & Fantagraphic comics, so that the guy who actually supports their companies doesn't get any for free! :icon_evil:

I wanted that "Wizard:100 Greatest Graphic Novels" edition really bad too! Fuck!
