It was great fun seeing everyone at McCormick Place for C2E2. I was very humbled this weekend by all the support shown to First Aid Comics. So many people stopped by the booth to say hello. And I really couldn’t believe how many people were wearing our T-Shirts. Thank you to everyone for your business and friendship. I am very grateful.
Over the weekend we scheduled two more local creators to come to FIRST AID COMICS on May 1st for Free Comic Book Day. We are really excited to have Rene Castellano and David Gruba come to the shop and show off their work. Not to mention our very own Kenya Fulton, who will be at the shop to draw and sketch!
CHECK LIST FOR Saturday May 1st:
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY AT FIRST AID COMICS!
