Saturday May 7th was Free Comic Book Day and it was a blast! Thanks to everyone who came out to make it such a great day!
Let me start by saying that this was the best back issue sale I have been to since I started working for the Fantasy Shop. There was a huge crowd waiting for us to open our doors at eleven o'clock. The crowd reached from the front door of St Charles to Pizza Hut down the strip mall.
We had tons of books for everyone to choose from, the line to check out was super long, but everyone was is great spirits all day. New friendships were made back in the quarter bins as people helped each other find books to complete their collections.
We had Batman, Batgirl, and Supergirl on hand to meet fans and take pictures. I didn't take as many pictures of the excitement as I wanted too, but that's the price of being busy helping people find awesome comics!

And be sure to check out the other shops' pages as well! They should all have pictures and/ or reviews of the weekend's events within a few days as well.
