I was happy to see that our favorite comic book store, Vintage Phoenix, was super-crowded yesterday, and doing a pretty hopping business, too. I managed to support them with my own two dollars and change (I looooooove the 25-cent comics bins). The girls, handed down the solemn honor of being able to pick out four free comics EACH, spent themselves quite some time perusing the possibilities...

If you had some doubts that perhaps I'm not a rabid-enough fangeek, check out all the comics stuff up in my etsy shop:
- Comic Book Dialogue pinback buttons
- Comic Book scrapbook tags
- Captain America T-shirt dress
- Spiderman quilt
And, um...that doesn't even include the stuff I'm going to make from the comics I bought yesterday.
