It’s official: I will freelance for comics. But when Off The Wagon, one of my favorite local stores, offers me extra free comics and store credit towards more comics to come and shoot Free Comic Book Day, how can I refuse? I love shop, the staff, the free comics, the costumes, and the amazing people. I hope this event continues to grow since it’s such a fantastic way to meet great people and get more exposure for an often under appreciated medium. I haven’t had time to dig into my comic bundle yet because I wanted to get the photos edited, the post up, and get a few miscellaneous things done, but I’m going to wrap this up so I can enjoy my hard-earned comics and some tea.
It’s a shame that I didn’t get to read all of these comics.

This Rogue costume makes me all 90s nostalgic.
He is: THE IRON DRAGON!
Off The Wagon is still a relatively new, local vendor and comics are only a small part of their inventory, but there was a huge turnout for them. At one point the line was backed up all around the store, and nearly out the door.

Fezzes are cool.
Ari unleashes the war cry of her bags of victory.
These two easily had the best costumes I saw all day.
She was a bit upset that she didn’t win the costume contest. I wish I could have given the prize to both her and her brother.
This kid used the crafts table to make a dragon mask for himself.
