Things are getting a little sad on my blog so I wanted to think about something that I’m looking forward to instead!
In 2013, I attended my first ever Free Comic Book Day event. Free Comic Book Day is held on the first Saturday of every May. Comic book stores (and some regular book stores) usually take part and give out freebies for the whole day.
The first place we went to was Kinokuniya. There were a lot of cosplayers there and we took a bunch of photos outside with them. Kinokuniya is a Japanese book store in The Galeries. They sell a large range of books, including having an extensive Japanese and Chinese section. It’s generally a great place to hang out and we’ve even taken naps there once in the children’s section (lol).Can you name them all? Heh
Powergirl & Batgirl 🙂
If you do go, I suggest that you check out your local store’s pages and events. They usually give you an idea what will be there on the day as well as any special non-FCBD freebies they might be giving out. There’s also the FCBD website which is useful for picking what you want if you’re indecisive like me.
There’s always a massive line for Kinokuniya and Kings Comics, and it gets bigger and bigger every year. I suggest that you bring some food or something to do while waiting because if you go in the morning the wait isn’t short. It dies down later in the day however it may mean you’ll miss out on certain freebies. They also give you a few comics while you’re in the Kings Comics line which is nice.
