Only 3 Days Away -Saturday is FCBD 2022 – Wednesday, May 4th, 2022

We got comics this week. As usual.

But THIS happens only once a year! If we are lucky.

We’re counting down to Free Comic Book Day.  In 3 days (actually, 2 days – it’s Thursday now), the Warriors will be warming up for game 3 in the second round, and people will be lining up to get FREE comics (from a limited selection) on the biggest day of the year in comics.  We’ll try to make it as “normal” as possible. Be ready to wait outside. We are not going to have 100 people at a time in the store for 8 hours. YOU should hope we don’t allow that. We’re going to try to have all the free stuff outside, weather permitting. Not sure how that’s going to work just yet.

The list of official FCBD comics is posted on our Free Comic Book Day page, with some pictures. Each person will get a choice of 3 of those. We are also going to dig out some of  last year’s freebies, and each person can have 2 of those, so that’s free. I THINK I heard Bob say he will have one poster with 100+ copies, so that makes six free things. If you slow down and spend money, you can get more free th ings. As it used to be, Bob will sweeten the pot and match your paid receipt with a same-dollar value from another big pile of books out on the sidewalk. FREE BOOK DAY! Get ready to FREEP out on May 7th, right here in Livermore.

Back to the present, we got some comics, some books, and some toys and Pops yesterday. That’s enough. List below.

Further notice has arrived on one front, anyway. Bob has removed the mask requirement. Cautiously. It’s still out there, with a new variant being created somewhere. Remember, you are only in our enclosed space for minutes, but Bob is there all day. We still need to be careful, people.

I am going to talk to the one person reading this. We have put a TON of effort into clearing out the aisles and getting things in order, especially the books and Pops. Please tell Bob you appreciate how the store looks and feels. And help us keep them in order.

Thanks to League Of Comic Geeks for this week’s images, which are in some unusual, non-alphabetical order, and 8 across. So it’s a somewhat random sample. I’ll keep searching. Use the list, and MAYBE the pictures will be useful.

Wednesday is Normally New Comic Day, no matter what you read on the internets. Watch this space and our Facebook page for the latest news about the rest of the month, season, year, millenium, etc. (And text messages from 5-Star.) The complete list is found below.
