Saturday, May 4, was Free Comic Book Day, a day where people all over go to independent comic book stores and pick up free comics. This year I decided to go cause there was a free Adventure Time comic being given away. Then I learned there were more comics I'd like. This was my first time going and I've been looking forward to it all week and had lot of plans for it. I planned to wake up early and walk out there before the stored opened to get all the best comics. I also planned cosplaying as Ash. I was Ash once for Halloween at a party in 2010 , it was really fun! So I though I wear the full outfit inside of the store but take it off once I left. Then I figured I had to walk 33 miles and I'd be embarrassed about wearing it in public. To me it's different on or near Halloween cause most people assume your going to a party or to trick-or-treat. Going out in public any other day in that would be too embarrassing for me.. So I thought I wouldn't wear it.
Anyway, I woke up on Saturday morning around 10:15 am. I had my normal coffee and browsed PC for a few hours. Later I looked for directions for my nearest comic book store on Google Maps. I didn't really like the directions they gave me so my dad told me a more direct route. As soon as I was about to head out my dad stopped me and suggested that he can take me as long as I made it quick and went grocery shopping with him afterwards, (I needed deodorant anyway so I figured why not.) Though I was gonna cosplay as Ash , I figured since we were just going in and out, it didn't matter much what I was wearing and decided not to dress up fully and just put on my Ash hat and a dark green shirt and jeans and we headed out. There wasn't anyone in costume anyway so I'm glad I didn't really bother with it.
It was really nice in the store , This is the first time I've been this comic book store after it moved to a new location. Before it moved, I'd go in there all the time as a kid to buy Pokemon and Yu-Gi-Oh cards. Anyway, here's all the comics I got .
In this picture: Kaboom Summer Blast featuring an Adventure Time and Regular Show comics and more. Ugly Doll Comic has a Pokemon comic called Pokemon Pocket Comic , an English version of a 4-panel manga called Pokemon BW 4Koma or something like that. The True Lives of The Fabulous Killjoys comic.Archie Digest comic. Bongo Comics Free-For-All , which is the company who makes The Simpsons comics. Mass Effect comic on the other side of the Killjoy one. And a new one called Chakra ,and a issue of 2000AD which has Judge Dredd and some others.
I think the back of The Simpsons comic's hilarious. XD
It was really nice and I'm wanting to go next year!
