My beasties and I have made it our yearly tradition to line up at the Bonifacio High Street branch of Fullybøoked every year since 2015 for the Free Comicbook Day. It is not really about “Free” comics, but mostly it is about hanging out together and enjoying some of the titles offered. I found that the “free” ones are a great way to browse new titles.
As early as two days before the actually event people started camping out. In the past years Fullybooked and Comix Odyssey offered early birds freebies, as in the copies of all the free comics offered that year to the first three people in line. I don’t think they have it this year but still I see post of people lining up.
My kids and I woke up at around 5am and Ubered our way to Bonifacio High Street and were there past 6am a crowd of people have pooled themselves there already.
We came earlier this year, the beasties were looking forward to the activity. A staff of Fullybooked BHS was there manning the end of the line to give out tickets like last year.
The heat was scotching! Good thing, the beasties and I had our umbrellas and the battery operated fan handy or we could not have survived!
