Well, another Free Comic Book Day has come and gone. Even with all the rain we had a great time and great turnouts at both comics shops in town.

Started off the day with a stop at Chik-Fil-A for breakfast with Nicki and her nephew Logan, then it was a quick road trip to Comics and Collectibles on Poplar.

They had a great selection of FCBD comic books- plus some free posters, buttons, TPBs, and essentials. I even got a big Godzilla Essential trade!

Nicki, Logan, and I set up at Comic Cellar on Austin Peay from noon-2pm(+) with some of the Memphis Mafia (AKA MSCA)- Kevin Williams, Antone Wade, and Matt Bowers.

Later more MSCA members including Andrew Chandler, Jane and Ronnie Shenks, Janet Wade and a couple more stopped in.

We also had some SMT members come by, too- Rob and Kelly, Joe and Gina, and Tim and Traci. I gave away some copies of Bushi Tales #1, some BT posters and postcards, and picked up some free comics, too!

After we loaded up we headed back across town to the Paradiso to catch the new X-Men Origins: Wolverine movie with some MSC, MSCA, and SMT friends.

Had to watch our step coming and going- it was a bit slippery from all the rain!
