Last Saturday was Free Comic Book Day! You knew that right? I had a countdown going over in the corner just in case. The family and I got up that morning and rushed on over to Alien Worlds comic book store to browse this year’s selection. Check out our spoils!

- Suicide Squad #1 (DC)
- Valiant 4001 A.D.
- Assassin’s Creed (Ubisoft/Titan)

*Those last two were in the store’s old Free Comic Book Day inventory.
We always try to support businesses during events like FCBD, so we bought a few things while we were there too.
- Comic book box with organizers
- Guardians of the Galaxy playing card deck
- Miles Morales: The Ultimate Spiderman #1
- DC Comics Essential Graphic Novels #1
Can I just take a moment to be proud of my 3-year-old? He comes with us every year to Free Comic Book Day but this was the first year that he really participated. He picked out his very first comic, the Sonic Sampler.
Honestly, I’ve never been heavy into comics like my husband was growing up. Of course, with all the best characters and franchises crossing over different media platforms; you can’t really avoid any one corner of geek culture. Not that I’m trying to avoid comics, but it’s certainly hard for any geek to not dip a toe in every sub-culture when you really love a character or franchise. That sounds like a topic worthy of further discussion…
So what did you get at Free Comic Book Day this year? Let’s compare notes!
