Stores all over the country are now reporting in and it seems not only was FCBD pretty good, it was even better than last year.
Issues of Green Lantern, Amazing Spider-Man, Tick and more flew off the shelves not only here at Merlyn's but everywhere around the World.
It seems the rumor of comics dying off to mobile media isn't all that true. A lot of parents came into FCBD to get comics for the kids, hoping to hook them more on just Xbox and movies on Demand.
So you have your comics, now what?
Well, first off, did you like what you got?
Would you like to know, citizen?
Just come in and ask us.
This year will be really big with the crossovers. especially with Green Lantern/Thor/Captain America and all the Avengers movie buzz.
DC's Flashpoint hits us on Wednesday which has Barry (the Flash) Allen waking up and finding the whole World is different.
Wonder Woman and Aquaman are fighting over Europe and flooding the country to get it. Batman runs casinos all over Gotham (and if you thought he was dark before, wait till you see him now).
Marvel has their FEAR ITSELF which has already kicked off with heroes fighting Nazi's. How can you go wrong?
FCBD went great for us this year. More people than last year. It was also keeping all of us busy what with MTG's pre-release of New Phrexia.
We'll be selling N.P. this May 13th.
Come in and see our giant "jam page" the public helped with.
Our costume contest was smaller than last year, but the QUALITY of the costumes more than made up for it.
Honestly, from all the kids to the giant Space Marine, to Joker and Catwoman and back to the kids, all were really spectacular.
(I hate picking only one winner, especially when it comes to the kids. They get all dressed up and everything. It's so cute. I guess it's what Paula and Simon run into. Ya think?)
Anyway, make sure you go look at our Facebook page:
