I've been so busy getting on with my new vintage shop I totally forgot to tell you all about Free Comic Book Day!

I had no idea such a thing existed until I heard about it through friends on Twitter. This is what I love about Twitter, learning about things you would never have heard about otherwise, from people you haven't always met!

So Saturday May 5th was the day and I headed to local comic book store Asylum, to see what the story was. My friends Paul & Lyn were there already so explained it to me. I thought you'd get a free comic book for each one you bought or something, but there were just piles of comics you could pick from! You could take as many or as little as you like, but only one copy of each comic and in exchange you make a donation to their chosen local charity, Cosseted Critters.

So I got this haul and that wasn't even them all! (that rhymes!) The next Free Comic Book Day is on May 4th 2013 and you should definitely check it out! I'm pretty new to comic books so it's a great way to have a look at some and see what kind of ones you might like!

I also got caught up to date with my Avengers Prelude: Fury's Big Week series and got the first of the AVX Vs series.

Which leads me very smoothly to my other Avengers purchase, Hulk's Helicarrier Breakout Lego set! It took me no time at all to build it because I was in some sort of Lego building trance!

There's lots of cool moving parts to play with, but it has to go back in it's box just now because I don't have space to display it and I don't want any of it to get lost! Did you visit your local store for Free Comic Book Day?
