Free Comic Book Day/Galactic Star Wars Day 2013

Busy FCBD 2013

Yesterday was another successful Free Comic Book Day and Galactic Star Wars Day with plenty of “may the fourth be with you” greetings being exchanged in comic book stores everywhere.  It was another successful showing at Elite Comics in Overland Park, Kansas with hundreds of attendees.  Supplies of all free books were well-stocked so everyone was able to get what they were after.  And of course, free cake.

This year you could also get this great Galactic Star Wars Day/Free Comic Book Day 2013 patch to pin on your favorite wookiee:

The biggest change this year seemed to be the record number of free comic books actually directed at kids.

The Sesame Street and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in particular are great books for any age.

And like other stores across the country there were cosplayers and artists showing off their skills creating sketches for attendees.  Here Nathen Reinke is showing off some incredible Star Wars trading card sketch cards and Damont Jordan is sketching an Iron Man for a guest:
