Olivia meets BLACK WIDOW-this time with pic

This time with the pic – Was able to pop out for FCBD at GALAXY OF COMICS Van Nuys, CA near our place. Olivia met Corrina a.k.a. BLACK WIDOW. After this we came home and saw a real spider and I asked Olivia if we should kill or let it live. She opted to let it live. PETA might be able to tie something in with that, though not sure how spider friendly they are. -May the Force be with you…Always. Phil, @Warp_Phil

Four And A Half Michigan Comic Shops On FCBD!

Hey gang!

CBR News Editor Kiel Phegley here, reporting after a megahyperbossanova Free Comic Book Day trip throughout Southeast Michigan. I’m going to put up a longer post later at The Cool Kids Table, but for now here’s a rundown of the killer shops I hit!

I started out at Ann Arbor’s Vault of Midnight, which REALLY did the day up right. They had staffers in costume handing out Bartman buttons, power rings and other fun items, and the line to get it stretched nearly around the block. What’s more, they had a ton of special promotions going with local businesses so you could get a discount on food or skateboards or whatever if you came in with your FCBD bag. Sick, right?!?

The Vault also had a fun photo setup outside the store.

As I’m told, the dudes at Nerd Life Productions will be Photoshopping this out to make it look like an old comic cover. Maybe when they do mine, they’ll crop out my weird cowlick.
