Thanks to everyone who came in for Free Comic Book Day last Saturday! Not only was it our biggest turn out ever, we broke sales records at two of our stores too! Thanks so much, it was a great time for everyone, and Jeremy Whitley and Jorge Aguirre said they had a great time at our signings in Vienna and College Park too!
Never fear, next year we will have even MORE free stuff to give away, but you should still try to come early!
Jerry Gaylord, artist on the new Boom comic Fanboys vs. Zombies (written by Sam Humphries), will be appearing at our College Park store from 1 pm to 3 pm to sign copies of the first 2 issues. In Fanboys vs. Zombies, a group of former friends at San Diego Comicon run into each other again just as a zombie outbreak occurs! Can they put aside their differences to use their fan knowledge to survive?
Jerry is a local Maryland comic artist, so be sure to come out and meet him!
