    See, this is what I don't get. Atomic Robo from Red5 Comics has been THE best FCBD story for the last three years running, and all indications are that the trend is going to continue tomorrow, and they can't even get shown.

    What's up with that?

    The article just shows the Gold Sponsors. Red 5 is a Silver Sponsor.

    I wonder how kids today would like Ramos' art. I wonder what a 14 year old would get out of that today.

    Nobody had the Fantagraphics Mickey Mouse comic by the time I got there. I was really looking forward to that. Couldn't find the Langridge/Samnee Thor/Cap comic either, but I wouldn't be nearly as disappointed by that if I had that Mickey Mouse comic. I did find an awesome free Alt Comics anthology that the FCBD website hadn't even listed. I found it at the smoke shop, I don't know if the LCS even knew about it. I was able to find the first issue of Bulletproof Coffin (again, at the smoke shop) so that was a nice surprise. Couldn't find the latest issue of Orc Stain though.

    I was going to get the Star Wars issue, but my FLCS didn't have it by the time that I arrived, so I got the Mouse Guard issue instead. Found a whole lot of Knights of the Dinner Table issues that I'll get to tomorrow after I see what I have already.

    The Mickey Mouse book was the only one I wasn't able to get.

    The LCS I went to would only allow 5 per customer, so I got Spider-man, the Tick, Super Dinosaur, Green Lantern (for the Flashpoint preview), and Silver Scorpion.

    Yo, can you tell me if there is any new pages in the Green Lantern issue? or is it just old content?

    Old content from the secret origins arc. Like I said, I only got it for the flashpoint preview.

    I think they're still free actually.
