Once again, Defective Geeks joined The Comic Bug for another round of Free Comic Book Day last Saturday. We arrived before the event opened that morning and I was amazed at the long line that was already waiting outside of the store! All kinds of free books waited inside the Bug, from children’s comics to horror to your classic Batman or Avengers. I just wanted to grab everything and run. There was also quite a number of great artists who were offering free sketches to anyone who had lined up to get their free books. There were also balloon animals and face painting for the kids — or adults!
Check out all our photos from the event after the jump.
It’s that time of the year again — and do as Wolverine says: go find your local comic book store and party with your fellow comic readers over some free books! For many of us, a trip to a comic book store may be part of our regular routine but Free Comic Book Day encourages everybody to stop by and rediscover the community closer to their neighborhood. Time to get off the internet and talk to real people about the latest Iron Man or Batman books. Or perhaps, discover a cool, indie series that you may never have noticed unless you took the time browsing the bookshelves.
Defective Geeks will be hanging out at The Comic Bug in Manhattan Beach, California again this year. We will be bringing candy and the fun that only the Defective Ladies can do.
Check out the list of creators that will be at the Bug on the event page on Facebook!
We hope to see you there!
