    My LCS has shit parking that can't handle more than 10 people, it's an hour and a half away on foot, and it's going to storm.

    Have fun, and I envy all of you who can get the Fantagraphics book.

      Park closer. What a moronic thing to say.

      That being said this anon is right:

      Who the frick cares? Everything is just a glorified catalog/preview. FCBD issues are no different than what you see on previewsworld every week.

      Is there a single 22 page one-shot FCBD this year? Even a child would open one of these and discard it, dejected, within ten minutes feeling like they wasted their parents time going to the shop.

    My LCBS has changed the location of the price tags again, as well as upped the prices.
    It says 2.50 on the cover, but it's 6 on the back. And that's just for Sonic the hedgehog.
    So I gather my sensibly priced total, get to the register, and he charges me a higher price. Discount bin is cover price. After I get home, go over it again with a calculator, and yup, that's 12$ above the real total.
    I think I just paid for his lunch.

    Why do shops limit how many Free Comic Book day titles you can take home? With a limit, a lot of people would probably just take the Marvel and DC ones, and never get hooked on the smaller titles that you really need the attention. I think getting existing comic readers hooked on new series they aren't reading yet is way easier than hooking a non comic reader on comics in general. I'd think exposing people to new books should be the priority for shops on free comic day.

    I would've gotten a few extra today if I could've because some other stuff looked cool, but I stuck to books I was already reading.

    • 2 weeks ago
      Anonymous

      My shop had 5 per person, but also added in back issues instead of just the new ones out.

      But you have to figure, if there's no limit then there's nothing stopping someone from taking like 50 books from the store, not buying anything, and then turning around and selling them to make some extra money.

      They'd just be bleeding money more than they probably already do.

      You have to have a realistic view of them as a business, and not an optimistic view of everyone becoming new readers when really maybe 1 in 10 will become a regular at the store.

        I guess I understand that. Still I'm in there every week so I was slightly annoyed I couldn't get everything I was interested in. I got the Absolute Power one, Spider-Man/Ultimate Universe, and Flash Gordon. Worst case scenario I'll have to buy the "for money edition" of the Energon Universe one-shot. And I was thinking of jumping into TMNT but I wasn't able to get that issue so that sucked a little bit.

        I guess a limit makes sense but I think five would be less frustrating than three. In my opinion. Then you can get the books you're already reading and check out some new ones. That's just the way I see it. But maybe he'll have some left over when I come in next week. I don't know.

      You might've gone too early. I went around 1pm and they were limiting people to 5 comics each and the place was packed. Went back 2 hours later and the restriction was gone and you could take as many as you wanted.

    Eh.
    The only comic shop "near by" is still about a 40 minute drive from me, and they're not even doing any deals to go along with FCBD to get some extra sells.

    So I'm not going out of my way to check out like...3 books that are just going to be previews anyways.

    I may as well just wait until tomorrow when there will be fewer people and i'll be out doing stuff anyway and see if they have any trades I want instead of wasting gas today.

    I went this year but didn't leave with anything. They were encouraging you to buy something before going to the free table which put pressure on me; it was working for others though because there was a huge line.

    I'm far more on the cartoon side of Cinemaphile so I wasn't really sure what to get, so I just left after browsing a while. I do want to get into comics though so I might return when it's less busy.

    Went to my usual store later in the afternoon than I wanted to go because I got held up running errands. When au got there most of the table was cleared off besides some bland indie shit. Went to another store about an hour away with a four book limit and got Power Rangers, Monster High, and Pokemon for my nephews and niece and Gatchaman for myself. Ended up buying some $20 card game that I'll keep in reserve as a birthday/Christmas present for later in the year. Not the best FCBD I've ever had, but it was nice to get out of the house.
