Well another FCBD is in the books, and yes the haul was great, but one does not go and wait in line for nearly two and a half hours JUST for a bag of free comics. You go for the people, to see old friends and make new ones. I have been going to FCBD for more than a few years at my local shop, but every year seems to be better than the last. The excitement, the comradeship, the fact that comic books, as simple as they are can bring a very diverse group of people together.
As one can see in the video above (Check me out at 2:51) you see parents and children, old folks and young, cosplayers, geeks and nerds of all ways shapes and backgrounds. I had the distinct pleasure of spending the day with my pal Tim from NorthStateNerd and my pal Blake, the man behind Distractotron and BeatDownBoogie, and I ran into Xombirick, one of the kingpins of the Wicked Radio Network, of which this humble bog is a proud member of. I also met a ton of cool folks (one of which I plan to highlight later this week) and of course, got my comic fix on.
All in all, it was a great day to be a geek! Check out the album below for some additional images, some are from me, but the better ones are from Distractotron’s Facebook Page (GO LIKE IT!)
