As we are a few weeks away from the 2018 “Free Comic Book Day”, I wanted to take a few minutes of your time to talk up some of the issues that most interested me. Now I pretty much lean towards the superhero and science fiction titles if anything but as I glanced at the numerous free provisions that will be out there on that first Saturday in May, noticed some others that were a definite curiosity. I’ve snagged the images from the Official FCDB Website but if you want a deeper overview of what each title is about you should click over to them care of THIS LINK. My plan for this narrative is to group the issues into the “Must Have”, “Would Like To Have” and are “Somewhat Curious” about. Let’s go.
MUST HAVE: My must have list is always the longest but that is depending on how many of the titles focus on superheroes that I enjoy each month. Some of these issues didn’t have the final cover art available when I downloaded but the list below is pretty straight forward so I don’t need to add much more to the mix.
WOULD LIKE TO HAVE: Many of the issues in this section are ones that I’ve either perused in the past or read steadily. Some are based more for the younger reader and with those I’d be gifting them to the children of friends.
SOMEWHAT CURIOUS: Based on what each store gives out, I don’t always get to these titles and instead try to complete my “MUST HAVE” list. Many of these are for gifting purposes so let’s examine.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: So there you have it. I don’t have much more to add to the mix about it all. What about you readers? Do any of my picks and preferences mirror your own? I’d love to know what you are snagging on “Free Comic Book Day” so please tell me down in the comments section below. Remember that while these issues are free to the consumer if your store is participating, they are NOT free to the retailer and they pay for them. It’s always a great idea to bring some money to purchase some action figures, collector’s cards or comic book supplies like the sleeves and backing boards. It’s a good way to show thanks for their doing such an awesome event. As usual my plan is to just hit Galaxy Comics in Bay Ridge as early as possible. I don’t generally find the time to head into the city after that since those folks line up at 8AM for some of the retailers. What shop will you be heading to for “Free Comic Book Day”? Chime in down below with your picks and a shout out to your local dealer. I will see you next time.
