So today is Free Comic Book Day in the States (don't know if they have it in other places, like the U.K.), and I took the girls to get some. in addition, got my oldest, Saphirra, a Powerpuff Girls comic that we bought, and my youngest, Jasmine, a MLP:FiM book, picked up 3 Mega Man books I have on my pull list, and bought some new dice in anticipation of D&D 5th Ed. Then, we went to McDonalds and had lunch. Saphirra shocked a LOT of people when she went up to the store owner, on costume as Green Lantern, and perfectly recited the Green Lantern oath. Priceless.

So, did you get to participate? If so, what happened? Were you unable? Does your country not observe this most holy geek holiday? C'mon, post plz, I'm curious!

Got it. The Sonic stuff was cool, but the Mega Man X story was the same thing they added at the end of the "After Ra Moon" saga. Still good, just gotta wait until next month.

Also picked up the Street Fighter book. Not bad. Great art, but meh on the stories. Also got Tick, and New 52 Future's End.

That was the point. The Sonic stuff is technically reprinted as well, it just managed to get out before their original source issues (Sonic Super Special and Sonic Super Digest) hit the newsstands.

I know last year's Archie Sonic/MegaMan was also reprinted material, being an "Issue #0" of the upcoming crossover saga, so it's hardly a new precedent.

So true. I still prefer the Sonic/Mega Man crossover event FCBD issue to this, though.

Sorry for the dub, but I just rememberes this is a thing happening on the 21st next month. Again, don't know if Brits get this, but I do know it is open onlt if your local gaming store got in quick enough. I am so fortunate. I'ma check it out and let you know what I thought.
