    May 4, 2008, 3:39 PM - Free Comic Book Day events? #1

    i'm sure a bunch of us showed up at comic stores yesterday for Free Comic Book Day. the 501st NEG was at 4 different locations.

    the one i was at was great! we had the town opera house to set up a star wars scene!

    all totaled we had vader, boba, greedo, stormies, a scout, luke, mara jade, c3po, a jawa, and an x-wing pilot for people, then jabba, han in carbonite and a gonk droid for props.

    some of our pics:

    Our free comic book day at Krypton Comics in Omaha, NE had an unusual guest for this area of the country. I also got to sign some books myself.

    I did FCBD with another garrison mate at a shop that was about 8 blocks away from my house.



    Take a good look at this picture... specifically above Bacara's head


    That was a complete, lucky accident that the number 66 appears above the Bacara's head. But I love the end result!

    I attended one in Charlotte. Kinda a sad turnout though.

    The Capital City Squad in Ottawa, Ontario Canada attended FCBD in 4 locations! I do have some pics, just have to get them off the camera first

    Here's a couple that my wife took at the Merivale location. They should suffice until you can get more from your camera Eli.

    Did one at Sarge's Comics in New London, CT It was the debut of my jet pack w/harness and I was worried that something would break and my jet pack would fall off and shatter... luckily nothing bad happened! Pics:








    (Oh, and for some reason within 10 minutes of being outside I was asked to leave my blaster inside... weird, and yet a terminator guy was allowed to carry his shotgun around)

    Bryan's Anakin costume just keeps getting worse! It looks more like Superman now!
