A week from today, on Saturday, May 6th it’s Free Comic Book Day at Acme Comics. According to Acme owner and MBIP pal and Contributor, Bob Gordon, it’s one of the biggest days at Peoria’s only comic book store. It’s hard to believe, but it was almost four years ago that Bob (along with photos from Yours Fooley) did a post on Free Comic Book Day and here’s a few photos from that post and a link to the entire one from 2013.
There’s a line and a crowd that starts early on Free Comic Book Day, so set your alarm and try and be first in line! This year’s festivities start at 11AM and will end around 6PM, according to Bob.
Somebody cue up Black Sabbath!
There’s Bob looking joyous behind the counter, ha ha ha!
Somebody cue up R.E.M!
This was a fun moment, Dueling Cameras with people I don’t even know!
Back outside, Alex told me he’s a regular customer and reader of MBIP back in 2013. Hopefully he's still both of those four years later! Click here to see the original link from Free Comic Book Day in 2013 and don’t forget to check it out next Saturday at Acme Comics. Follow their facecrack page for further updates all week long. Okay, we go live on Monday and tomorrow will be a brand new Sunday post, so I have to get back in blogging mode! We’ll see you all tomorrow!
