Amber Love 04-MAY-2012 It’s hard to be fair when it comes to promoting retail competitors but every year I do what I can to pull this off. This spring is a bit more challenging in that regard because WILD PIG‘S bi-annual sale is now a minicon over the same weekend as Free Comic Book Day (FCBD).

I’m dividing my time between my local shop where I work part time, COMIC FUSION on Saturday, May 5th from noon-3pm. Their FCBD event is planned to run until 5pm and then Saturday night gaming will take over around 6pm. We’re having a few of the best costumers spend some time with us which is always something Flemington people talk about months later. Our townspeople LOVE costumed folks. We have artists Chris Muller and Tom Schloendorn (from the Inkwell Awards) joining us inside to talk to people about comic art and do some free sketching. I’ll be photographer for the day and I’ll sketch too if people are interested in my doodles. The address is Comic Fusion, 42 Main St, Flemington, NJ 08822.

Then some of us will head over to the end of day one at WILD PIG’s con in the Embassy Suites of Somerset. There’s an after party planned at O’Brien’s Tavern and it will be exclusively for the WILD PIG attendees! Sunday, May 6th is the second and final day of the con. This is a sale that I talk about often. Tons of back issue bins for cheap and half-priced trades; first come, first served basis. The show is in combined effort with the Comic Geek Speak Supershow.
