Free Comic Book Day 2011

We scored most of our loot at our local comic shop (although I think I'm going to have to go back to get this year's Mouse Guard), but they were already out of the main reason for our outing by the time we got there. So we drove a bit more to get this:

It features our favorites (Owly, Korgi, and Johnny Boo) and a few new-to-us comics (Upside Down, Pirate Penguin vs. Ninja Chicken, and Okie Dokie Donuts). And on the back are pictures of Johnny Boo Does Something!, which comes out in November, and all of the other Top Shelf Kids Club books. So, now that my Johnny Boo knows there's a new Johnny Boo book coming out, he is of course very excited.

If you missed Free Comic Book Day this year, the free Top Shelf Kids Club comic book will be available on the Top Shelf website in June. And, you can sign up to receive a free poster, which of course I just did.

We also got a Yoda drawing from an artist at Keith's Comics in Dallas:

And a couple of Lord of the Rings action figures:

And some secret things for Father's Day.

Looks like it was a fun trip to the comic book stores for you and the boys.

I love the whole idea of free comic book day. Comics are a great way into reading for many kids.
