Saturday's triple threat - Free Comic Book Day, Star Wars Day, and the Kentucky Derby

Free Comic Book Day
So many weekends pass without much excitement, then we have three events in one! I need more balance!
My day began with an early morning run to my local Newbury Comics shop for Free Comic Book day. I found a few books of interest to me. They instituted a maximum pull of three books. I went for Stranger Things since I love the series, Vampirella which is a longtime love, and I grew up with Casper comics. A good start to my day.

I have the original Star Wars trilogy ready with a strong desire for The Force Awakens. We'll see how much I can watch before tuning in for the Kentucky Derby. It's known as the most exciting two minutes in sports, but the coverage begins hours before and kind of sets the mood. Maybe this will be Star Wars Weekend!

Free Comic Book Day For me, Free Comic Book Day yielded Stranger Things, Vampirella, and Casper.
Happy Star Wars Day! May the fourth be with you. Happy Star Wars Day! May the fourth be with you.
