Very nice! What's his booth called, I always try to go to nice people's booths to make purchases!
My comic-book guy is great too, FCBD is always big at his location. On the years that I'm scheduled to work on that day, he still sets aside stuff for me since he's cool like that!
His booth is Nuclear Comics. He does sales for cons (like most booths) and what's awesome is when he does cons, he also has stuff in his actual store on sale too.
That's so nice of him! Yeah, I get there usually an hour and a half early, but even that wasn't early enough this time to get the 50 free bags (I still got all the comics though). The line was already down the side of the building, around the corner and halfway down the back of a large sports store. Guess I'm waking up even earlier this time!
Got a screenshot so I'll remember the name, thanks for the recommendation! I'll pass it on to my friends, too!
Yikes, I think your store is busier than mine! Mine did have a huge line last year, which unfortunately I didn't notice since I was on the other side of the store. I will plan better this year, and definitely get there earlier! I don't think I even knew about the free bags? As for waking up earlier though....ugh, the things we do for our loves!
Awesome! No problem! I like going to that store and always feel very welcome. I tried another store before this one and it just felt like a store, whereas this one they get to know their customers. I walked in one time and was looking at the wall of new comics. The owner walked up, pulled the comic I was looking for off the wall and handed it to me. He automatically knew why I was there and what I wanted
Some stores order more freebies than others. It actually costs the stores money to buy the free comics to five away, so some have limits on how many comics people can take and some have less free extras than others. My store ordered 50 bags last year. The year before I got one. It was a blue drawstring bag with the FCBD logo on it. The owner had the bags prepacked with 1 of each comic
