Free Comic Book Day is one of my favorite days of the year! Luckily for me, I live right by a great comic book shop called Samurai Comics (which you should totally check out if you live in the Phoenix area).
If you aren’t familiar with Free Comic Book Day, it is the first Saturday in May every year. Participating comic book shops will give you a free comic book, and sometimes have other activities going on as well. It’s like a tiny, warmup comicon.
At the comic book shop near my house, the Arizona Ghostbusters were available to meet and greet and to take photos with! They are the best! I’ve had the pleasure of seeing them before here at the Phoenix Comicon. I always get a kick out of their replica Ecto-1. There was also face painting, and local artists available to talk about their work. The shop was completely full, and people were in the most adorable nerdy ensembles and cosplay!
Take a look at some of the great people I met, and amazing outfits I saw!
