Event: Free Comic Book Day 2017 [FCBD 2017]

Check BookDepository. It's FCBD! They may have Discounted Sale on Graphic Novels
Free Delivery on all Calendars at the Book Depository

It was Free Comic Book Day yesterday. And yes! I went to Filbar's and Fully Booked to get Free Comics.

This year's FCBD was attended by a great number of people compare to last year's. I didn't expect the numbers. The line reached the 5th floor of SM Megamall (see below).

We are provided a Flash Pass, a ticket to get Free Comics. They do this so that the Mall operation will go smoothly without the disturbance of mass FCBD patrons waiting in their floors. I got the 4:41 PM - 5:00 PM queue. I went there as early as 10:00 AM, so I have to go window shopping, eat, sit and play my Pokemon Sun in my 3DS for 7 hours T_T

While waiting for almost 7 hours, I also dropped by at Fully Booked to get their Free Comics (1 pc.) too. Note, you get 2 pcs. Comics in Filbar's.

So, the day ends, here's my FCBD haul. I got three comics :)
