Comic Book Day

Happy Post Free Comic Book Day!

Every year, comic book stores around the country open their doors to the celebration on the first Saturday in May. This year, I visited two shops: Meltdown Comics and Golden Apple, both in West Hollywood.

A few issues are given out for free, made specifically for this day with the intention to turn you on to new comics, promote a new comic book movie, whatever. David Peterson, the artist behind 'Mouse Guard,' was also on hand for some autographs. Here's the stash we picked up this year:

But I also took this opportunity to support my local comic book store and not buy online at Amazon like I usually do. I decided I need to finish off some of the series I'm in the middle of, thus I picked up the last books of 'Preacher' and 'Ex Machina.' 'Fables' and 'The Walking Dead' are still in production, and I have quite awhile until I catch up. Also picked up some single books we've been interested in. My collection is starting to get a little too big though. Gotta make some room on the shelves...
