How does a company sell a Mouseguard HC, is it really a hardcover book? That's pretty classy/expensive for a FCBD issue.


Its a hardcover book like a childrens story book. The quality is really nice.

How does it work at FCBD? Do they have all the books available and you just grab what you want? We don't have any comic book stores in the state I live in so I've never been to one \:\(

It's different at every store. The most awesome FCbD event I went to was huge. The entire parking lot was packed with Indy artists doing sketches and selling their self published co mica. Free hot dogs, cosplayers, photos with Wolverine. Inside the store you could choose a set number of comics. It was a big number like 10, 12, 15 or something. Then they kinda shuffle you out the door since it was so packed. Not much chance to shop that day but it was super fun. The worst one I went to was a store that convinced me NOT to make the drive out to that awesome store and instead attend theirs, where I got one comic and couldn't even choose it. Most stores will give away between one and five or so I guess. I heard of a few that lets everyone have a full set. I've heard of stores that don't give any away, they make you pay or they give you one free with a purchase. It all just depends.

Another fun store I went to didn't have any actual FCBD comics, but had a table loaded with 80's/90's stuff for free. I got some cool stuff that day

I would have thought selling them or making you purchase something would be illegal \(shrug\) Not being able to choose and getting only one would kinda suck also but getting a set would be awesome... Sadly I've never been inside a comic shop ever and I'd need to jump on a plane to experience FCBD. Kinda makes a "free" comic book a bit expensive lol

You have a perfectly good custom title. There are children in (random economically under developed country name) that would LOVE to have your custom title.

This book is flagged sir!

No seriously, even though this looks like she is sitting on a potty -
for those that don't know this is a bumbo seat (a seat used for toddlers
to gain balance and muscular control for the act of sitting)

The Spider-man season one seems like a good pick up. Usually retails around 25 i think.
