In a rarity for me I only missed one comic. Legends Of Superheroes in Oakville, CT was only out on Punchline by the time I got there. Disappointing but missing one comic is pretty much a win for me. All the other comics were ready to go.
Unlike previous years when I would live-tweet the comic as I went through it this year I only put out my final opinion on the comic due to time. I managed to snag a trio of interviews which ate up a lot of my day getting. I even received a really cool print as a thank you from one of the interviewees that I really want to find a good frame for. It’s going to be easier for me to just post the tweets below of each of the comics, so it’s a bit truncated this year by necessity. Still, here’s what I came home with for Free Comic Book Day and my thoughts on them.
Hopefully Punchline will show up in comiXology like many Free Comic Book Day offerings but we’ll see. Overall I think this was one of my best Free Comic Book Day hauls. What were your favorites this year and did you find something new to check out? And did you buy something to benefit the comic store who paid for these so you wouldn’t have to? There were a few I probably won’t keep but under the circumstance I might do a contest or something, or give them to relatives. We’ll see as I want to go over them with a more critical eye once the excitement is over. That’s the future though. I will be doing more extensive reviews of this year’s haul in the Saturday comic review slot so prepare for those. I hope you had a great Free Comic Book Day and a great day in general.
