Free Comic Book Day 2019

I only get to the comic shop every other week. And it worked out that I got to go on Free Comic Book Day this year. Nice timing really. I also went by the local weekend flea market where my friend Matt has a booth selling comics. He was also doing stuff for FCBD this weekend.

I brought along my usual sidekick, my nephew Mason. We had a good day. Starting with a stop at Dunkin' Donuts for breakfast. Then we ran by Family Video, Mason wanted to get the new release calendar for this month and I rented him a couple video games. Then it was off to the Book Broker for our first FCBD stop.

There I got to see my friend Vince, a local comic artist. I picked up a few of the free comics and my regular books as well.

My free books I picked up

I got Casper, Archie and Vampirella, a odd mix I admit but I was most interested in this year. Mason got a small art print of Deadpool, a Captain Marvel button and a Power Rangers print.

My regular comics pick up

Most of these were in my pull file with the exceptions of Major X, Zorro and The Six Million Dollar Man. Again an odd mix but I enjoy a variety of titles.

After the comic shop we headed to the Diamond Ave Flea Market for our next stop. Matt had some free comics he was giving away as well as having his comics on sale for 1/2 off.

I don't remember what book Mason got but I picked up a Kabuki comic. An older title I enjoyed reading back in the day. I also took advantage of the half price sale to replace some of my G.I. Joe comics and add a few more older books to my collection.

Flea Market haul

I got a nice run of G.I. Joe books 30-37 missing #34. Four Archie titles, two Betty and Me and two Jugheads. As well I got four Conan books. Headed home after that. 

All in all it was a good day. Mason and I enjoyed ourselves and we got some good comics. Yes I'd say it was a good day.
