Always forget about this day. Would be a great day just to pick up some stuff to read on.

I got DC's Superman special (which confused the hell out of me because it was a pre-52 story), Marvels Infinity prequel, Brian Woods Star Wars #1 (not a star wars fan but I thought I'd give it a shot) along with some Valiant #1's (they were a dollar each) Shadowman, Bloodshot, Archer & Armstrong, & Harbringer.

@nightwingnerd: I didn't think it was anything special to be honest. You didn't miss out.

@arturocalakayvee: I only got the Superman because I thought the Unchained preview would be an actual preview not an interview.

I picked up Infinity, The Walking Dead and 2000AD for free. After spending what felt like a few hundred years in my local store's back-issue basement, I eventually bought the Amazing Spider-Man 529-532 and Ragman 1-4 (From the limited series of the 1990s). It was a good day.

I don't remember the free ones I got; I know I got the Mass Effect, Walking Dead, and Infinity issues; don't remember the rest.

For trades, I bought: DC Universe: The Stories of Alan Moore and 9/11.

Issues: Uncanny X-Men 1-3 and Uncanny X-Force #1 ("Marvel Now" issues).

I got the Dark Horse book with the Star Wars mini, Avatar mini, and a preview. I also got the DC and Marvel books as well as a Simpsons comic, Cartoon minis comic, Judge Dredd comic, and a Walking Dead comic. I bought Blue Beetle #2 & 3 pre-new 52. I'm trying to slowly get every issue of that volume, but I have scattered issues (not in order).

For free: Superman, Infinity, Walking Dead, Judge Dredd

Bought: Avengers #9

There was also a hot Poison Ivy cosplayer there.

It was a good day! :D

Infinity, Star Wars, Aphrodite, and TMNT. I liked the TMNT best, I thought it was a fun story. Amazing art for Aphrodite, so many of those eastern European artists are so amazing. But the story didn't knock me out. Awesome showing for Darth Vader in Star Wars. I was hoping to get Marble Season but they didn't have it.

My kids got Kaboom, World of Archie, Smurfs, Atomic Robo, DC Nation Sampler, Sonic the Hedgehog, Hulk and SMASH, and Mega Man.

They also had a big back issue sale and I picked up 32 comics for $8 from their discount bin: a lot of old Star Brands, the 80s Eternals mini, and some other random stuff. Great haul.

We had a ball this year! And the kids met superman...

I picked up:

My LCS was also having a gift with purchase, so after grabbing my week's pulls, a few Essentials I wanted and a toy for my son I got an Extremis HC free!

All in all a great day!

I wasn't able to go on Saturday, but I went on Sunday and there were a few free comics left. I got Marvel Infinity which I really wanted and The Walking Dead which I'm going to give to my sister as a joke Mother's Day present. I also bought Earth 2 # 12 and Green Arrow # 20. I also wanted Stormwatch # 20 but it was sold out.

@arturocalakayvee: I only got the Superman because I thought the Unchained preview would be an actual preview not an interview.

Yeah, same here. I still enjoyed the story, though. And the interview.

I'm defiantly picking up Superman Unchained when it comes out. One of my favorite writers and my favorite artist working on the same title? This is going to be awesome!

In addition to Superman: Last son of Krypton, I also got Star Wars, Infinity, FUBAR, and Judge Dredd classics.

I bought Batman #523 and 524. All-in-all a pretty good day for my comic collection.

New-52 Superman #1, Infinity, IDW Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Animated Adventures, Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.

I got the Strangers, the Bongo Free-For-All, Ramayan, Judge Dredd, 2000 AD, and the Kaboom Summer Blast.

I didn't buy anything else, having worked the whole weekend there. I was just ready to go home. As usual, they'll get plenty of my money on Wednesday.
