    So who here is going to their local comic shop early Sat. morning on May 6. 2006 to pick up some free comics? I'll probably be hitting up the local comic shop near my work since I'll probably be working overtime next Sat. I'm going to get the Free Transformers and Star Wars comics for sure, or probably grab 1 of everything and give the ones that I don't want to my nieces. :)  I'm definitely getting the Heroclix Wolverine even though I don't play it. I want the Stargate Jack O'Neil free figure but the comics shop around me won't have it. :(  If anyone goes to comic shop that has him can you please get me 2 of them? :D 

    Here is the official website: FREE COMIC BOOK DAY

    I'll be getting X-Men Runaways, Transformers, and JLU. Otherwise, nothing seems very interesting. maybe the Viper Comics and the Liberty Girl books if they look ok.

    You can basically call up your local comic shop to see if they are participating. The comic shops that ordered the FCBD items already have them but will be giving them away on Sat.

    Check the Preview thread Monday, I'll have a few pages of Liberty Girl #0.

    I've only been to FCBD once... I may go this year.
    If i do I'd like to get...
    Superman/Batman #1 (why is this listed under Silver Sponsor?)
    Justice League Unlimited #1
    The Transformers/Beast Wars Special
    X-Men/Runaways

    But I just end up with whatever they give me at my local comic shop. I'd also like the Stargate figure too.

    picked up a few 'tec back issues, and just picked up the Star Wars/ Conan comic

    and on a side note,
    it was hysterical seeing kids running around the store, pulling any and every comic off of the shelves thinking that they were free and the parents being genuinely upset to find out from the store owner that that was NOT the case haha

    I got 2 different star wars comics, some funny comic book, a graphic novel and SIX copies of the transformers/beast wars special! I should've gotten like, ten of them or something though. Three are for sale in my new thread. As for the free heroclix, I hope my comic store wasn't doing it because I HAD NO IDEA! :mad
