    Couldn't care less about the Transformers Animated stuff but the GI Joe should be interesting.

    Blackest Night #0 is what I would want. I don't have a comic shop near me though >_>.

    Went to our Travelling Man and they had a crapload. Picked up Blackest Night, TF:A/GI Joe, Ninja Turtles, Warhammer, Avengers, Wolverine... a few others I think too.

    The only ones I'm actually looking for are the TF:A book and Blackest Night #0, but I usually pick up one of everything available. The ones I like, I keep, the ones I don't get set out at work for anyone that wants to take them home.

    Is Animated recycled material as IDW's free comic TF stuff has been every time so far? Or is this by some miracle something new? I wouldn't care one way or the other but my daughter is a huge TF:Animated fan.

    Sadly won't be able to attend one this year. My local shop is closed today for a wedding. Don't really mind, though. They're good people.

    It's the story of Prime when he was at the academy, which has already been released during Animated comic run.

    I was torn between “Aliens” and “Transformers Animated”. In the end I want with “TA” because at least that was my little cousin would be allowed to read it.

    No fair! The comic book store in my town only allowed one free comic per customer. I wanted the “Aliens” comic book so bad but I picked “Animated” so my little cousin would be allowed to read the one I picked.

    I could have picked all but decided to be modest and just picked up 4 free comics and the normal stuff I pick up from my hold slot.

    Man, I love my Store! My local guy is friend's with the Letterer of Dynamo 5 so last year I got the first 12 issues for free, this year I got the next 6! Plus, I got one of each book and brought home doubles for my roommates.

    I picked up one of each issue, plus one extra each of the Blackest Night and TF Animated issues to leave at work. The shop I visit doesn't have a limit on what you can take, probably because they spend the entire rest of the year trying to unload the surplus free issues from FCBD. They also had their annual FCBD "let's try to clear out some of the surplus crap" 50% off sale...on obscure manga.

    Went to the comic store by 1pm... and spotted only one TFA left, grabbed it. {I love the feeling like hunting the last toy on the shelf} I actually saw the back cover which is GIJoe first hehehe...too bad my store limits to 5 per person.. so I grabbed 4 the rest are cyber hunter, Cars, nascar heroes, and red sonja. I love free comic book day! (and I don't buy comics regularly :D  )
