Free Comic Book Day 2017

Getting better at scheduling this out.

I picked up my nephew at a little after 10am.  We got to the comic shop about 10-15 minutes before they opened.  We had to park on the other side of the 24 Hour Fitness building and walk a bit to the comic shop.

There was a short line that went pretty quick after the shop opened at 11am.  We each grabbed our allotted 3 comics, got rung up at a register, and left.

By the time we got to the mall/theatre, it was about time to grab some food and go to our seats.  They ran out of medium sized ICEE cups and didn’t have pretzel bites, so I settled for a large ICEE and a hot dog.  Joseph got an ICEE and popcorn.

There were no loud talkers, and only some seat confusion due to not being able to see the seat numbers once the lights go down.

Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 holds up on second viewing.

After the movie I checked my phone and saw a voicemail message from Gator Games, which I checked to confirm that my copy of the Shadow War Armageddon rule book was available for pickup.

After picking up some sundries from Target we quickly drove down to the game store and I got my rule book, while Joseph asked the workers there about Yu-Gi-Oh cards.

We made one last stop at the Brisbane library, who also participate in Free Comic Book Day, and they have no limits on the comics one can take.  I don’t know why we just don’t go there initially…

I dropped off Joseph, then refueled my car and myself (gas and McDonalds, respectively) and went home, to find too many choices on TV (Captain America movies, Star Wars marathon, NBA playoffs).
