Free Comic Book Day!!


Today was free comic book day and I went to the best comic shop in San Francisco, Whatever Comics!

In case you don't know what Free Comic Book Day is, it happens every year on the first Saturday of the month and stores have events and give out free comics. It's a good way to get new readers in and for regulars to check out new stories. It's always great time to meet other folks and support your local shop!


I was channeling my inner Hawkeye today!! I had some errands to run and got to my store at about 11am. I was hoping I didn't miss out on the Rocket Raccoon comic but when I get there it was not busy!


They did have set limits for the freebies, 3 for adults and 5 for the children. It was a great selection of items and I couldn't pick what I wanted to check out!



I walked out with Guardians of the Galaxy, Rocket Raccoon, and Far from Wonder: Mad Hatter. They let me get some comics for L since she wasn't able to get to her local store so I got her Teen Titans GO and The Smurfs. 


I also picked up my weekly pulls and some extras that I didn't photograph. You may have seen it on my instagram but you see the Lego Hawkeye cover? That was a variant that was out in October. They got me a copy!! My LCS is awesome and will always have my business!!


And Agent Coulson has joined my Funko POP family!! They even gave him a badge with his picture! So neat!!

And that was my FCBD!! It was calm and I got some great stuff!! How was your day? What did you end up getting? Discovered anything new?

  1. Sounds like you had a fantastic day. I'm so glad you got the free comics you wanted and I love you were channeling your inner Hawkeye when you picked up your Hawkeye variant. :)

    1. That Hawkeye was totally unexpected!! They also charged me cover price!! Not that I mind paying a few bucks extra since I know that they have to order a TON of the regular cover before they can even ask for those variants. It was awesome!

  2. I LOVE the Looking Glass Wars series! I bought Hatter M the SDCC before it came out (booth early sales are awesome)!
    Have you read them? Hatter M is a spinoff/what-happened-to-Hatter for the trilogy!

    1. I have read the first book! I need to get on reading the second and third! Mistah J has picked up the graphic novels when we met the artist at SDCC and we actually found the single issues one year at a random con! The author was so impressed we owned them!

    2. Woot! I don't think I've met a reader since Border's was still around (a worker there had a tattoo)! I got my brother hooked on the series. I need to "make" my husband read them, now that I think about it! Glad you FCBD was good though! That lego Hawkeye!! jealous!

  4. It looks like you had a great FCBD! Whatever Comics sounds awesome! I'm still trying a couple of local comic stores (I moved less than a year ago), so I haven't picked a favourite yet.
