This year I was invited to my pal Ernie’s Friendly Neighborhood Comics store for the annual FCBD (Free Comic Book Day) festivities on Saturday May 5th (I’ll be seeing THE AVENGERS on opening day Friday). I’ve signed at Ernie’s store before (it’s in Bellingham, MA, about 50 minutes from me) and I recommend the venue highly if you’re looking for a service-focused business with a family theme, community support and interaction, and product diversity. I’ll be signing from at least 9am to noon. I would’ve posted this sooner here but Ernie hasn’t gotten around to plugging it at his own site/blog yet so I decided to get the ball rolling. Maybe I’ll see you there or at The Southcoast Toy & Comic Show the next day in Fairhaven, MA (see last news article).
