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!
Then it was back on the road again to our next stop.
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!
Flat Stanley had a good time, 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.
Logan shared his nachos with Flat Stanley.
After the movie we headed down the street to Rafferty’s for Dinner.
Logan brought his own utensils.
And we got a to go box for Flat Stanley.
Had to watch our step coming and going- it was a bit slippery from all the rain!
Had a great time and can’t wait for next year’s Free Comic Book Day!
