Being very, very new to almost all things comic book store related, Free Comic Book Day complete baffles me. The concept sounds simple, its like a fan appreciation day, right? Something that the publishers, writers and stores do once a year as a “thank you” to the fans for a year of loyalty.
But it seems that the Royal Family’s favorite comic book store does it far bigger than just the regular “here’s your free swag” way. This is Third Eye Comics 5th Anniversary, so they’re doing it up in style. For all the deets you can check out their free comic book day site or visit their facebook page and check out the store’s info, which they update daily.
The King is excited to see that Cullen Bunn is returning, along with Brain Hurtt. As excited as he is about those two, he might very well have been close to losing his mind when he saw that the Imperial 501st Legion would be on hand for photos! At one point he was interested to join this group, so this is pretty much a (small) dream come true for our King.
As for your future Queen, I’m just going to enjoy the atmosphere of the day. The King’s mother will be visiting and she’ll be staying with the Prince while the King and I camp out the night before and belatedly celebrate our anniversary together. I will be making a couple pieces Deadpool of artwork to have signed by Cullen Bunn, just for the King to have as a one-of-a-kind thing.
I’m hoping to break out my comic book platform heels and rock them at free comic book day! We shall see…I need to break them in just a bit more, but since Free Comic Book Day isn’t until May 4th I think I have some time.
In the meantime, if you are in the Maryland area and reading this…Third Eye Comics has 2 locations, take a trip and check them out. You won’t be disappointed, I promise you. The staff is awesome, the store amazing and, there’s freaking comics, toys, games and more…what are you waiting for? Go check ’em out!
