FCBD Don’s Not Dead

So today is Free Comic Book Day!!

I went to Shellback Artworks for about 7:30 am! I was the SECOND person there. Kevin managed to get there moments before I did to score that first place in line!! (That’s him behind the sign…)

I’m too tired to really put a lot of info in this but suffice to say, everyone had a blast!!

Don’s Not Dead

Last month when TMNT #44 hit newsstands, hype exploded that Donatello (the purple wearing, smartest of the bunch) was going to die!!

Obviously to those in the comic book world, Donnie wouldn’t stay dead or really for sure maybe even ever have been dead. Close to death, sure. For a fictional character anyways.

I kept seeing people posting the books for sale for $100s of dollars… And people were buying. All my local sources sold out the morning the book hit. I had my copies of each boom, but no extras.

Every time someone posted in any and all groups that Don was dead, I came back with no, #donsnotdead and showed some reference pages that had been released of the FCBD (this weekend!!) issue showing, just that. #donsnotdead

So, with a few friends from the interwebs, we talked about doing some pictures of Donnie alive and well (so to speak) and take pictures of an action figure Don at various places!

image

I started by digging out a BUNCH of Donatello’s!! And wrote a haphazard sign… Then started a group on FB for #donsnotdead (look it up… Lol).

Lack of Posts

Haven’t posted yet this month… As we crank down the number of days until FCBD, I have been spending my time getting my costume and accessories together. I’m hoping it will be done soon. Just need to find boots & gloves and pick up some more material for it. Then it should all come together!

This Weeks Buy Pile

So, this weeks new books arrive March 20th.

My post from last week covers last weeks books and this weeks, and this post is just going to cover what I’m buying.

First up, from Dark Horse, I’m not sure that I requested it, however, usually, where its title is similar to a previous title I was getting, it might be pulled for me. Or it might not.

STAR WARS LEGACY #1 PRISONER O/T FLOATING WORLD

Next up is DC Comics. If you’ve been reading along you can probably tell that most of what I buy every week since forever is DC books. I wasn’t big on the New 52 but I’ve stuck with it, much like the mullet days of Superman…

ACTION COMICS #18

BATMAN BEYOND UNLIMITED #14

batmanBeyond
(Not actual cover)

GREEN LANTERN NEW GUARDIANS #18

JUSTICE LEAGUE #18

JUSTICE LEAGUE OF AMERICA #2

SUPERGIRL #18

I don’t have a whole lot of love right now for the way Superman or Supergirl look, but the Justice League book has been decent.  Really enjoying Batman Beyond Unlimited and I wish it came out twice a month!

I’m not reading anything from Image it seems. Nothing that I can recall anyways.

Marvel is up next and all I get from the House of Ideas is Spidey books.

SUPERIOR SPIDER-MAN #6

ULTIMATE COMICS SPIDER-MAN #21

A couple random books that I get from the smaller companies are as follows:

FANBOYS VS ZOMBIES #12

VOLTRON #11

And finally this week sees the next installment of the main series and the final issue of one of the mini series, TMNT from IDW.

TMNT ONGOING #20 & multiple variants

tmnt20

TMNT SECRET FOOT CLAN #4 & multiple variants

SHOTFC-04_Cover-RE-Jetpack
(Jetpack Variant)

There might be one or two more books that I pick up tomorrow, but at least these will become part of my already to huge collection.

What are YOU buying?

PS- This is post 99!

FCBD 2013

As Free Comic Book Day approaches, a few of the comic shops I visit have posted info on their events.

Free_Comic_Book_Day

May 4th, 2013

#1- Jetpack Comics will have Kevin Eastman, Rich Woodall & plenty of other fine creators attending!

#2- Shellback Artworks will have Peter Laird, Jim Lawson as well as one or two more people besides being owned & run by Steve Lavigne!

I have no idea what any other shops are doing at this time because its just not possible for me to be at any other places in one day! Be prepared for fun and a bit of waiting! BUT ITS FUN!

If you are going to either place, let me know. I will be at Jetpack most of the day but do plan on getting my jetpack in gear and getting to Shellback.

Dress up if you can, they love that stuff!
