Free Comic Book Day

I further indoctrinated the kids into the world of geekdom last weekend when we took part in the annual Free Comic Book Day festivities.

Free Comic Book Day is an event staged by the comic book industry on the first Saturday of May. They've been doing it for several years now. Marvel, DC and some other comic book companies all publish some books they're willing to give away for free on that day. It's all intended to get people into comic book shops and stir up more interest in the medium.

So I took the kids down to Electric City Comics--the shop where I purchased most of my collection over the years.

The guys in the shop let the kids each pick out two books. So Nolan got a Transformers book and a Sonic the Hedgehog comic. For Thomas it was Spider-Man and Justice League Unlimited.

So why haven't we heard any word from you about the Transformers Movie?

Sure... busy busy busy!
