Free Comic Book Day 2012

It's the most wonderful time of the year! Christmas comes early to geeks across the country as we celebrate Free Comic Book Day which takes place the first Saturday in May. This year the event was held on May 5, 2012 and I joined my friends at Comics and More as a featured cosplay guest.

Although I have been attending Free Comic Book Day for several years as a fan, this year marked my third time participating in the event as a cosplay guest. Catwoman was requested to make an appearance and other cosplayers were in attendance including Robin, Power Girl, Supergirl, Spider-Man, Green Lantern and X-23. Lots of fun was to be had at the Comics and More King of Prussia location in Pennsylvania. Not only were there lots of free goodies but artists present including the very talented Joi Washington

Plenty of kids stopped by the store to say hello to their favorite superheroes. Cosplayers  posed for photos and handed out stickers and lollipops for the children. A podcast was also taking place live in the store. When fans come together to celebrate something that they love it is guaranteed to be a good time. New friends are made, great conversations are had and the energy is vibrate and fun. When it was all done and over my friends and I celebrated with dinner and a screening of The Avengers. Free Comic Book Day not only promotes literacy but unity and gives us memories to last a lifetime. My thanks to Comics and More and everyone who came out to the event. See you next year!
