As has become tradition, I made it out to shoot Free Comic Book Day over at Off The Wagon.
As some of you may have noticed, I have a certain taste for… alternative culture. As such, I have more than a couple alternative friends who invite me to alternative events like Oddmall: Emporium of the Weird. It’s basically one giant event for dealers selling things like comics, postage stamp jewelery, duct tape bags with Pokemon designs, monocles, artificial severed limbs, sci-fi sculptures, wooden robots, and countless other things that you didn’t know existed, but now want to purchase for your home.

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.
