Last Saturday was Free Comic Book Day!
The best shop in Auckland, Heroes for Sale, participated once again, this time at their brand new location. As you’d expect, the place was packed with people getting their free goodies, and plenty of people purchasing too!
They were giving away two free comics from the selection to each visitor to the store, plus another four if you made a small donation to KidsCan – here’s what I grabbed:
The offerings from Marvel & DC were honestly a bit disappointing. I know it’s wack to complain about free stuff, but previous years have been pretty decent – these… I dunno, the Superman issue just felt like a token effort, and Marvel’s Infinity felt more like an advertisement than anything else… bummer!
The others were fun enough reads though – pick of the bunch had to be the Kaboom! Summer blast which featured an Adventure Time “choose your own adventure” story – aptly titled Choose Your Own Adventure Time. It’s hilarious and brilliant and if you missed it… find it!
This is as good a time as any to mention the all new Heroes for Sale store – if you haven’t checked it out, man, it’s cool. Great things about their new premises include:
- It’s three times the size
- There’s customer parking
- It’s in a way less dodgy part of K’ Rd!
Here’s a couple of pics from in store, including the special Iron Man display they had set up in honour of Iron Man 3!
As a side note, I read that the store raised over five hundred bucks for KidsCan on the day…
That’s all, have a great weekend everyone!
