I can't wait to bring my son to Free Comic Book Day. The local shop is having the 501st legion there (so I'll be trooping in costume for the event) but Since the hubby is also a comic geek, he'll likely come with me and wrangle the dude. Still, we haven't been to our local shop in MONTHS! A situation that definitely needs to be rectified!

You can make it a great day or not. The choice is yours.

This is great on so many levels! Getting back into a shop...getting your KIDS into the shop and reading...finding new books to try...ah, I miss that! A subscription is wonderful, as long as they pull what they're supposed to! If they offer a discount, and you buy enough books, you can satisfy your comic hunger and help keep the hubby calm with the saving you'll get! :)

For the first time in over a decade, I set foot in a Comics shop. There's a local one here by the name of Rick's Comic City that I'd been meaning to check out for awhile. I was looking for things to do with the kids and, since they wanted to go to a park somewhat near Rick's, I decided to bundle that in.

It was the first stop and I was so glad I went. It's a pretty typical comic shop - tons of comics in both individual issue and graphic novel format with action figures/collectibles on the wall and on some racks placed throughout the store. Right when we came in, there was a magazine display off to the left and it was filled with kids comics. Teddy and Pete picked out one each - Tiny Titans #36: Titans to the Center of the Earth for Teddy and The All-New Batman: The Brave and the Bold #3: Through the Looking Glass for Pete. I'd asked them to sit on the couch near the front of the store and read their comics, but when does a two year old listen? So I wasn't able to look around quite as much as I wanted.

Still, I went directly to Green Arrow to see what I could find. And I picked up .Green Arrow: Brightest Day #1,2,4&5. They didn't have #3, so I'm looking around to find that one. They also had issues 6 - 9, but I knew if I came home with too many comics, I'd face a firing squad from my husband. It gives me more reason to come back.

I'm debating subscriptions. I'm not sure yet what I'd want (other than GA and maybe Teen Titans). I'm going to see how regularly I get up there before I make a commitment. But the possibility is one I'd never entertained before and I'm finding myself getting pretty excited about the possibility.
