I was asleep, so I didn't post these when I got home, but we got a nice haul from Free Comic Book Day despite the pissing Irish rain. In fact, too many to take a picture with them all visible in.
My son only picked three comics. I picked ones for me and my daughter took all the others - so we took one of everything, much to my son's annoyance. She even wanted Archie and Supergirls.
Afterwards, I offered to buy them a graphic novel or comic of their choice. I got Batgirl into my daughter's hands and she loved it. Which I'm happy about. My son though seems to have gone off superhero comics in all forms. Loves the movies and cartoons, but not comics. Only has eyes for Skylander and Avatar Last Airbender comics. I got myself next volume of Manhattan Projects.
I haven't got around to reading the ones I got for myself - but reading the kids collection first. There are some fun ones in there.
And big kudos to The Big Bang comic book store in Dundrum. The queue was just as long before the store opened as last year, but the bigger space they have now meant we got through to the shop in a third of the time. And the staff were great as always. Even had my orders ready when we got in.
