Free Comic Book Day 2011

This was the first year I hit our local comic shops for Free Comic Day.  The family and I hit 2 shops on Saturday morning and brought home close to 20 new comics to try.  I read a lot of comics as a kid, but I stuck mainly with independent series and never go into the popular titles.  I've been wanting to encourage the kids to read comics, but it can be a bit intimidating to find a series when some of them have been in production for so long.  FCBD provides a great opportunity to sample both new and old comics.  Some of our favorites that we brought home:

  • Clone Wars
  • The Last Airbender
  • Super Dinosaur
  • Silver Scorpion

We have many more and as we read them I'm sure our list of favorites will grow.  

Our second comic stop of the day gave us a surprise when we found numerous Star Wars characters greeting customers.
