Free comics!! whether you like or not, you will take home a free comics.

Fullybooked celebrated the Free Comic Book Day, and this is the 2nd biggest free comics celebration in a store. And my guess is right many people lined up before 10am in their branch in Bonifacio High Street, got a long talk with the owner of the store, Jaime Daez, and he told me that the line went long up to the other side of the whole street. This is a big sign that the free comic book day celebration is a big success in the Philippines and I’m already predicting that the celebration will be bigger next year.

Free comic book day exclusive were given away for free to all store visitor, its a one comic per visitor policy, after receiving your free comics, the store attendant will stamp you a sign that you already claimed your comics. Also lucky customers who bought any item in the store that day won some items in the raffle and lucky draw gimik. Heroclix exclusive item from Diamond comics were given as prizes for the raffle.

Jamie Daez told me about the silent auction for old collectible comic titles and character statues, I noticed that some of the items are from his private collection, Collecting comics, toys and artworks are a good investment, he said that to me and I totally agree with him, because I’ve been into collecting comics and toys in the past and I’m a heavy buyer of comics and toys during the 90’s and as time goes by, there are times that I need to dispose some of my collections due to lack of space at home and my worry of the item to be damaged accidentally. So some of it are from his collections way back 5-6 years ago, and upon seeing these items are really a hot collectible for me, Like the Sandman 1st and 2nd issue cover, Iron fist vs. Captain America issue, Wolverine 1st on-going series, Spider-man comics and best fight issue, Transformers limited series set that I heard from my reporter that the item was bid off at P1500. Signatured and autographed comics, First appearance of Sentinels in X-men comics, Star Wars classic comics, Batman TPB and many more.

Fusion!!!! – Goten and Trunks won’t be happy to see this.
Also statues and figures are auctioned also, hot items like the Iron Man stealth statue that i heard from my reported that it was bid off at P35000. Star Wars statues, Movie props and replicas, and many more.

I really like the set up in their store, it was like a mini convention for comics, then during the hour we saw a guy in a Lobo costume. The bounty hunter costume being displayed his muscled figure and took photos with comics fan during the event. there’s a contest during the day to all visitors in comic book characters costume.

My grab for the free comics is the 30 days of night convention exclusive, I was about to take home the Uncanny X-men FCBD, but when I saw Ben Templesmith cover of Red Snow, I immediately decided to get the horror comics. Sorry X-men, but the vampires in snow attracts me more.
