Free Comic Book Day: We Survived!

So we made it to two comics stores today — both branches of Capitol Comics here in Raleigh. And it was the three Jasper boys — me, Drew, and Mitch / Robin / Wolverine:

Yep, we brought Mitch along, and he had a blast. Everyone loved his costume (he lost the claws and the mask almost immediately.

Comic Shop Guy, on our way out with our haul: “Keep up the good work, Robin!”

Me, herding Mitch and Drew out the door: “He will, after his nap.”

And all told, we picked up fifteen comics and two trade paperbacks. Not bad at all. And the kids were entertained all the way home…

    1. Lessee — total haul:

      Three Sonic comics for Drew (ugh! – terrible writing and art), a Scooby Doo comic, Shrek and Madagascar’s Penguins (a flip book!), Fractured Fables, Bongo Comics, Mouse Guard/Fraggle Rock, another Fraggle Rock, Tiny Titans, DC Kids, Wall-E, and Toy Story for Mitch (and Drew)

      Drew carried his comics around with him all day. So cool.

      For me — War of the Supermen (why not, right?), Magnus/Dr. Solar, a Del Rey Sampler, and the two trades — Chew and Unwritten.


    1. When it’s three freebies per person, and there’s three of ya, you can rack up the goodies! But I also bought some stuff I wanted to get to show the comic shop love, too! 🙂
