Here is my video on Free Comic Book Day. Tell me what you guys think.
Comic Uno Free Comic Book Day (my topic video)
For me I got Super Dinosaur Origin Special on behalf of Image, Young Justice/Batman: Brave and the Bold Super Sampler on behalf of Johnny DC, Amazing Spider-Man and Captain America/Thor: The Mighty Fighting Avengers on behalf of Marvel and Atomic Robo/Moon Girl/Foster Broussard on behalf of Red 5 Comics. I wanted so much more too so I really had to take time to decide on those. I made some actual purchases too, 3 trade paperbacks: Superman: Death of Clark Kent, Superman: Exile, and Superman: Last Son. Unfortunately I had to pay cover price on all three, lol. It really bites I think regarding the 5 issue limit because personally for me I think it should be a circumstantial rather than democratic thing in that those who are there earliest should get the first crack at everything. I know, lol it defeats the purpose but its just my personal philosophy and I rather liken the five issue limit to reserved parking: it should be a 'first come, first serve' basis. I'm still happy regardless though!
It is always neat to see what others get.
looks like the limit average is 5, I went to one store that was 7, but the selection left was bare.
I missed the heroclix this year, but I'm a Kyle fan anyway, so I am not too upset.
And you are right, Free comic book day is a win for everyone.
People get a gateway with little to no commitment, while the industry gets to promote their products in a friendly environment.
Because TCAF happened the same day I couldn't jump to store to store, so I went to Stadium comics, where they go all out, with a sale and artist alley. I ended up wearing this years official shirt to get the back signed by artist I admire.
