I love komiks, I learned to love reading because I grew up being encouraged to read comic books by both my Mom and Dad. This year I took my beasties to attend their first Free Comic Book Day at Fullybooked Bonifacio High Street Branch.
Unlike most I don`t have an extensive collection of comic books, but I do attend book launches and Komikons whenever possible. I never thought about the Free Comic Book Day as a big deal since most of the books I want are manga and Pinoy Komiks. But I am curious about the devotion comic loves have to get their comic choices.
I have been monitoring the Free Comic Book Day FB page so I am aware that people have started lining up the day before the actual event! Talk about devotion and will! They woke up as early as 5:00 AM to wait in line for us to grab out free comics. By 7:30AM the time we arrived, the line for the entrance was zig zagging all over Hight Street. This is ok because Fullybooked made it a point to open their doors early for the comic devotees.
