Was originally thinking of combining this post with another event post from last weekend, but couldn’t format the flow of paragraphs and get what I wanted to say just right. Going to split them up instead.
Last Saturday (6 May) was Free Comic Book Day (FCBD)! If you’re not familiar with the geek date, the first May of every year is a day where… well… the comic community celebrates and free comic books are given out at participating stores!
In some countries, cosplayers can be seen about and other cool panels and guest appearances etc. happens, but it’s not as a big a thing in Singapore so a few stores just give out free comics in addition to other small things going on. Probably the biggest participating store in this tiny-ass country would be Kinokuniya at its main store, but the FCBD Singapore FB page would be the best info on that.
I’m not a huge comic fan, but I have a pretty big soft spot for comics in general, seeing as I grew up on popular heroes like batman and spiderman, then fell deep into manga. Being able to sample a few series is a total bonus 😄
