Don't miss FCBD at CBH -- but get there early!
EDITOR’S NOTE: Of all the places I have attended Free Comic Book Day since it’s inception (coinciding with the very first SPIDER-MAN movie) — the folks at Captain Blue Hen know how to do it right and do it better than any other in my experience. Seems a little hypocritical for me to admit that I’m not going to be there this year - - but I have experienced the joy often enough that I defer my spot to others. The attendance is normally rock-concert worthy — so take my advice and get there early. Where will I be on FCBD? I’ve decided to lend my support to the new comic shop in Oxford, PA (can’t get any closer to my home than this!). It’s their first year at FCBD, so they are just getting a feel for it. I’ll be inside the store helping out so Deadpool can make an appearance. Go to CBH early and then drive to Oxford to visit The Maroon Hornet and say hello!
