It’s Free Comic Book Day!

I actually got five free comics today; stickers aren’t always right.

Here are the comics in question:

Free Comic Book Day 2024 (DC Comics), Free Comic Book Day 2024 (Conan the Barbarian: Battle of the Black Stone), Free Comic Book Day 2024(Marvel Voices)
Free Comic Book Day 2024 (MAD Magazine Special Edition), Free Comic Book Day 2024 (Barda)

I got free stuff before I even entered the store, as I won a raffle while waiting in line:

Funko Pop! Grogu with Cookies

I also paid for something, opting to add to my poster book collection:

The Alex Ross Marvel Comics Poster Book

Actor Brendan Wayne – grandson of John – who portrays the on-set Mandalorian on the Disney+ series was at the comic shop as a special guest, as Free Comic Book Day coincided with Star Wars Day.

It’s rainy and miserable today, and the line to the tent where he was signing autographs and posing for pictures provided no cover, so I opted to leave after grabbing my stuff and doing my bit to support the shop.

I took a few pictures, but most of them turned out blurry, so I’ll close out with the one that turned out clear, a shot of the shop’s owner – with some Mandalorians in the background – walking over to shake my hand while I was standing in line.

Remember to head out and support your local shop if you can, and if you don’t know where your local shop is, click the Free Comic Book Day link at the top of the post to find one near you.

As always, special thanks go out to my comic shop, Comic Logic Books & Artwork. Please remember to support your local comic shop, and if you need to find one, click here.
