Jimmy Palmiotti And Amanda Conner At Free Comic Book Day 2015 At Emerald City Comics

Free Comic Book Day hit at Emerald City Comics in St. Petersburg, FL today, and it was a big hit. Crowds starting gathering at 10 am and the line for free comics was busy until the middle of the afternoon. A lot of people filtered through for their free comics, sketches from local artists and a signing appearance from Jimmy Palmiotti and Amanda Conner.

This is why Emerald City Comics gets it right, and is my local comic store. People were coming from as far as 100 miles away to visit this store on Free Comic Book Day. Why? Because they are good to their customers and when they run events like this they run smoothly and the staff works hard and are always friendly.
