TODAY'S FEATURE - Blog #3123:
I may be blogging a little more about this Free Comic Book Day Event than I usually would blog about one...But that's because this event from last Saturday, May 1st, is reaching many different audiences due to the different venues of media that were there because of the RARE COMICS that were on display, as well as the Free FCBD Edition Comics that were being distributed!
Yesterday, I blogged that 'The Media Was There For Free Comic Book Day!'. Those included in order of attendance: ComicBookCollectorsBlog.com (myself), CNN -iReporter, MonkeyTossTV.com, and XETV Channel 6 - the CW Network affiliate.
As of this morning, CNN is the only one that has videos up that I can link to, so I elected to post their videos here first.
Laurence E Gibbs from MonkeyTossTV.com says they will be uploading their filming on Thursday as part of their weekly updates. XETV Channel 6 did not have their video online as of this morning, even though I viewed their edited video Saturday Night on their 10:00 News Show. When these other videos are online, I'll mention them at least on my Facebook Group Page at: http://www.Hamersky.com
Earlier last week I blogged about 'Where The Action Is' for Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) that was to be held on Saturday, May 1st.... Because I knew where at Least ONE Copy of Action Comics #1 would be displayed for viewing at a Local Comic Book Shop, (LCBS).
Then last Saturday morning I knew that: "It DOESN'T Take A DETECTIVE To Figure Out It's DOUBLE The ACTION' at this same LCBS, because I saw both Action Comics #1 featuring the 1st Appearance of Superman, AND I saw that there was Detective Comics #27 featuring the 1st Appearance of Batman!
And then yesterday, (Sunday) I blogged about 'The Media Was There For FCBD' as mentioned above. After that, Tina & I left for a 'Cinco de Mayo' party, and I just logged back on this morning first to post Monday's blog before going on to my normal activities...So that's all the links so far! For more photos, announcements of winners of my FCBD prizes given away by ComicBookCollectorsBlog.com, and future updates...Those will be posted on my Facebook Group Page, at http://www.Hamersky.com unless I see another reason to blog here about this weekend's event!
(ADDITIONAL NOTES From Michael: Also, I want to mention the physical Event host's web site, SoCal Comics's web site can be found at: http://www.SoCalComics.com
PLUS: Last year Tina and I drove over almost all of Metro San Diego for the FCBD 2009. See these links, 2009 FCBD Part 1 & 2009 FCBD Part 2 for my reviews on what all the participating stores were doing last year. This year, I only blogged and Facebooked from this one location.
