I did pick up a few of the free comics that were put out for the day. And because comics need more support than just reading them, I bought a couple: a new issue and a back issue of The Dark Tower. I've slowly been expanding my comics purchasing, because I like comics and want to support them, and when I can I buy individual issues. Individual issues of comics nowadays don't sell as well, though the stories sell better later when they're collected into larger books, but many stories wouldn't make it to book collections in the first place unless they sell OK individually. Thus, this. (I credit Peter David, Writer of Stuff for really driving that home. He's one of the creators I regularly support. Have so since 1991. Whoa. That's been a while.)
I haven't mentioned the pirates. Or the guy from the Alter Egos Society who showed up in a full faux-metal (with some metal) suit of armor. Or the occasional use of a whip -- outside the store, thank goodness. I've mentioned it now. It was a heck of a thing, Free Comic Book Day as celebrated at the Hollywood TFAW. I think I did mention that.
