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!

Im surprised you haven't read the House Of M story arc. How far back have you read in Marvel? Civil War? Secret Invasion?

I was too lazy to go out on Free Comic Book Day

@shawn87: When House of M came out came out  I did not pick up a lot of comics or at least as much as I do now. It depended on the story arc and if it was good enough

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.

If I never mentioned TCAF to you, it is the Toronto Comic Arts Festival and its like a Giant artist alley.  So at TCAF I got Darwyn to sign the front and met more creators.  May 7th was great this year.

@Silkcuts: The Toranto Comic Arts Festival sounds fun but it was too bad that you could not go to a comic store for Free Comic book day

@haydenclaireheroes:  I went to two stories, one in the morning and one after TCAF, but normal FCBD I hit up a lot of stores...lol
