Free Comic Book Day 2011

Saturday, May 7th 2011 was Free Comic Book Day all across the nation. I went to Collectors Corner after having to go to my real job cause of an emergency. Thanks, work problem. I got like no sleep because of you.

First off, I must give props to Collectors Corner, in Parkville Maryland. Randy (and the rest of his amazing staff who I love very very much) runs one helluva great shop. Between comic clubs, movie nights, gaming nights, and a Girls Only Comic Club, there is literally something for everyone. There is almost always a sale, too!

For FCBD, Randy almost always has the best party (or whatever) in town. It’s like a mini con inside of his store. Artists, cosplayers, free food, gaming, and cheap comics. Everyone working and volunteering always do a great job getting people whatever they want and need, within reason. I had a ton of fun that day. It was great to see so many kids come out with their parents and getting comics, which will hopefully make them lifelong fans.

And now, some pictures:

All in all, it was a great day. I did visit a few other shops in the area, but by far and large Collectors Corner always has one of the best turnouts, and parties, in the Baltimore area for FCBD. Hell, the cosplayers even caused a car accident. That’s pretty awesome.

    I have to say it was great being able to meet more girls that are into comics and not the fluffy anime stuff like host club, I mean like Watchmen and Deadpool and the more actiony stuff like that. Also I am the ghostbuster in your 4th pick 😀
