Today was the first Saturday in May and that is a great day for fans of the comic book medium because its “Free Comic Book Day” and that means that participating retailers give their loyal customers a batch of comic books for nothing. I headed to my neighborhood comic shop of Galaxy Comics to see what was going on and it was nice to see the patrons picking up additional titles along with the free ones. Take a look at the shop from the entrance.
I snagged photos of some of the titles that were on the shelves for the sake of this post. There was a lot of great stuff for the taking that’s for sure. Every shop that participates does this differently and some places have a better selection than others but I am happy to report that the folks at Galaxy are on top of their game and have a whole lot for their patrons to choose from. Take a look at a few.
Here’s what I managed to get my hands on today, a nice assortment of some truly great heroic adventures. You can let me know what you were able to get in the comments section below. I’d love to hear what you found of interest today.
The staff had a cool shirt which you can see below. I bought one since they had an extra for me to own for my own wardrobe. Pretty snazzy don’t you think? I think so.
