And so, after nights of tossing and turning due to excitement– the much awaited day has come! Free Comic Book Day had every comic book fanatic up early just to get a taste of this awesome day of FREE comic books (soooo redundant but yeah XD)
We arrived at the Fully Booked, Highstreet, BGC branch and we were surprised at the throngs of people lined up– a blockbuster I must say. The line goes all the way to the back of the building.
While in the line, we took the opportunity to take a pic with the huge store glass sticker poster of the event..
That’s my boyfriend wearing a Green Lantern shirt (from AM-BLVD) :3
and this is me, wearing Captain America shirt from AM-BLVD and Captain America shield bag from Christmas Toycon 2012 :3
Also, there was someone who took a picture of us since he found us interesting in a way we’re wearing superhero shirts xD Marvel & DC yeah! (though I could’ve worn my Wonderwoman shirt that day– but I felt like going for Captain America :P)
We were able to enter the building prolly around 10:30-11:00 AM. It was freaking hot outside. Good thing the clouds were in favor of us and shaded us for awhile.
We let out a sigh of relief once we entered Fully Booked (Yay for the glorious aircon!)
But inside, the line still continues..
annnnnnnnnd goes around the staircase…
and finally the sight of the free comic books! yay!
Since there was sale that day as well at the Comic Odyssey, we took the chance to grab something as a way of thanks for Fully Booked for holding this awesome event. Everything’s like half the original price so who wouldn’t be tempted to grab their favorite titles right?
Here are my hauls from that day 😀
Free Comics: Superman (MoA Fully Booked) , Disney Fairies: Tinkerbell, Ang Pilipino Komiks, Kaboom! Summer Blast (which has Adventure Time comics), Rurouni Kenshin/ Dragon Ball Z (back to back)
Bought: Captain America Reborn, Secret Avengers and Kikomachine 7 (half the price! except Kikomachine 7)
I wasn’t able to go for a sketch since my favorite artists are in Q.Ave that day 😦 and we had to leave for our One Piece Z screening.
Overall, I think the event was a success and probably next time, I shall try my best to beat those early birds! hah! XD
I’m looking forward to meet and see more local comics from the future FCBD events as well 😀
