My Adventures On Free Comic Book Day

Well, better late than never. Here's how I spent my Free Comic Book Day 2015.

 The nerdiness actually started the night before. I saw Avengers: Age of Ultron.
I highly recommend seeing it!

 Here's all of the free comic books I got.

 Other free stuff I picked up.

 First stop was JC Comics & Cards.

 I was greeted by Batman and a small Power Ranger.

 I spent over an hour in line.

 Some of the books on the wall. I have those two Hulk comics!

 John, the owner, dresses up as the Joker each year.

 I bought these four books from his quarter box.

 Second stop was Books-A-Million!

 Avengers Assemble!

 The cashier was dressed up as Emma Frost, The White Queen.

 I bought a Funko Marvel Mystery Mini and got Deadpool.

 Lunch time at Fred's Diner!

 I had the bacon cheeseburger, my wife had a patty melt.

 The third comic shop was the Quaker Square News Stand.
They just changed their name to Quaker Square Comics after FCBD.

 The building was the original Quaker Oats Company and has tons of memorabilia.

 I bought a Hulk magnet.

 The fourth and final comic shop was Kenmore Komics & Games.
I love the metal Spider-Man on the side of his building.
This is my regular comic shop that I go to every two weeks.

 I bought one book from the quarter box and five packs of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. trading cards.

 The day didn't end there. We stopped at the Goodwill and I bought a Garfield book and a shot glass from the local defunct amusement park Geauga Lake.

 We then went to the race track track/casino where they were celebrating the Kentucky Derby by holding a funny hat contest.

 I "won" an old generic Iron Man 2 cup.

I played The Wizard of Oz Haunted Forest slot machine.

 I didn't win anything, but it was fun.

We ended the day at Five Below where I bought this Infinity Gauntlet t-shirt.

It was a really fun day!
On Sunday I went to Oddmall.
But, that will have to wait for another post.

Looks like a good time. Love the comic shop inside the old Quaker Oats building. Great that they kept some history.
