Free Comic Book Day 2014

Attended my first Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) event at Fully Booked in BGC last May 3. To whoever came up with this idea, thank you. You bring so much joy to so many comic book readers out there, especially with price cuts of up to 50% off (crazy, right?) Though I'm not a big comic book fan, my boyfriend Mike is, and I'm glad I got to accompany him to his most-looked-forward-to yearly event (I think he loves FCBD more than his birthday, haha).

We got some great stuff that day - well, Mike did, since most of the comics I got were for him (I only kept a couple for myself, but more on that later). Fully Booked allowed customers to take three FCBD exclusive comics each. In addition, they gave out five random single issues and packs of candy from Made in Candy. And as if that wasn't awesome enough, they also took off 20% on their graphic novels. Grabe na talaga. Now I understand why a lot of people go to this event - three words: comics shopping spree! Haha!

After a long while of walking around and watching Mike scan the shelves, he ended up with his top five. But five is too many, even for Mike. So, like always, he rationalized and asked for my help in picking which ones to go home with.

The same thing happened in Megamall. (I don't actually know why he asks for my opinion on what to buy, since I have no knowledge whatsoever when it comes to comics - but I appreciate that he does.) We passed by Filbar's on our way back to the car, so we decided to line up again. They had FCBD exclusives that we didn't see at Fully Booked, plus some hard-bound titles at 50% off. Another point for Mike! Check out what he added to his collection that day (visit his blog for comic book reviews and more!)

Finally, here's what I got for me and my siblings. We love Archie comics!! :D
