Free Comic Book Day – May 3, 2014
It was a great Free Comic Book Day. I hit up four different comic shops during the day, two that I had been to before and two that I hadn’t.
I started off at Night Flight Comics in Murray. After waiting in a short line, I got inside and picked up a nice pile of backissues that I had been missing.
Next, I headed north to Dr. Volt’s Comics in Salt Lake City. I had never been there before, but they have a great selection of stuff there. Definitely going back.
After that, I headed back south, stopping off for lunch at Moochies Meatballs and More, a nice spot that had been featured on the Food Network show Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. I’d been meaning to stop and try them out, and I was glad that I did. Exceptionally tasty meatball sandwich and killer fry sauce.
Next, I hit another place that was new, Dark Soldiers Comics in Sandy. A small shop, but they had a lot of obscure stuff and they had one of the new Elfquest issues on shelf, which is always a good thing.
My final stop was at one of the shops close to home, the Dragon’s Keep in Lehi. Much smaller selection there, since they’re more a gaming shop than comics, but I found a few new issues there and picked up a new pile of bags and boards.
All in all, it was an excellent day. Spent WAY too much money on stuff, but hey, it’s all good, right?
