My daughter and I made our way to three local comic stores today and picked up a handful of comics. She will keep hers. I will give mine away to kids. We left at 10:30 a.m. and didn't get home until 3 p.m. One of the stores made a real event out of it, giving away hot dogs and hamburgers, offering sales, and having Hero Clix training demos going on. I left with a starter bag of my own Clix. The group, I found out, plays every Saturday from 2-5ish. I am so taking my daughter this summer. We had a blast. 

I'd love to hear from you readers if you attended a FCBD event? Drop us a comment and tell us about it. What comics did you pick up? Did you read any, yet? Did you see any kids?

My older sons and I went to our local store and picked up a few free comics. I got Sonic, the Fraggle/Mouseguard (strange mix, I thought) combo, Shrek and a few others for my five year old. The older boy went to the more adult table, but the ones he got (including The Tick!) seemed fine. There was a pretty good crowd in the store (it was also the day of a Pride March in my city and so there were some colorful folks in the store).
