Pure Evil - Free Comic Day Coming Soon


My local comic book store got in an almost complete set of all the classic Dark Horse Comics Aliens, Predator and Aliens vs Predator series! They cut me such a smoking deal on the AvP set that I couldn't resist.

Dark Horse is starting new Aliens, Predator, Aliens vs Predator and Prometheus series soon.

Don't forget that the first Saturday in May is Free Comic Book Day. My daughter has become addicted to comic books, I get her Spongebob, My Little Pony, Scooby, Scooby Team-Up (With Batman!) and a bunch more. There are a lot of good kids comics on the Free Comic Book Day giveaway list this year, more than most years where they tend to focus on stuff for the adult collectors.

Head to your local store and start your addiction. It's like heroin without the crushing blow of dreary reality at the end!

Nice score!

I recently got the first 30 issues of New 52 Aquaman. I've also been catching up on a ton of Marvel comics since I got Marvel Unlimited.

FCBD is the best holiday on the nerd calendar My local shop has a hell of a party for FCBD, tons of free books, artists doing sketches, free autographs etc.

Great score, and great reads. I still have all my old Aliens, Pred, and AvP stuff from years ago, including the AvP omnibus and Aliens: Labyrinth. Shoot, now I'm going to have to dig thru the closet to give em a read.

No, the whole point of "free" comic book day is to get people into the stores to buy the print comics.

The comic books aren't actually free, the local store pays for them.

SICK! the AvP comics were some of my favourite! I've read a lot of Dark Horse comics and love them all. Recently started framing comics and hanging them around the house (i'm good at convincing my wife). Might have to get some AvP ones i think

Pity comics are really hard to come buy down in Aus

I'm hoping that they have a lot more of the AvP series in that collection. I just didn't want to spend a fortune.

My daughter got 4 comics this week! Scooby-Do, My Little Pony, Rocky & Bullwinkle and Spongebob. She's breaking the bank.

Talk about the price inflation if you want to break your brain some. When my grandfather was a man in his 20's in the army, comics were 10 cents. When I started reading comics around 10 years old, they were $1.50. These days a regular issue non-foil non-holo non-specialrandomvariantcover is $3.99

A single issue may not seem much but when you read 10-15 titles a month it adds up lol.

Yea, it adds up really fast. You take the four comics I got my daughter and three for me and that's over $20 before I added in the AvP set.

You take $20+ a week and suddenly comic books are a $100 a month habit.

I see people walking out with huge stacks sometimes and I've been there in the past, but now I try to really limit myself to only a couple of books a week.
