When:
Saturday, May 2
10:30 AM to 2 PM (store opens at 11, so be there early please!)

Where:
Elite Comics
11842 Quivira Rd, Overland Park, KS
(913) 345-9910

What:
It's Free Comic Book Day, so head out to help spread the word, espeically since one of the issues being given out is a Clone Wars comic.

Clone Wars or Prequel era costumes preferred for those that have them, but beyond that check out the list of issues above in case you have some non-SW costume related to one of them that's fine too; then beyond that just whatever Star Wars costume you have is AOK.

I'm hoping to be there. Though I might be in my Viper if it's done by then as there is a GI Joe/Transformers comic coming out that day. We'll just have to see. Cool

gandalfbmg,

If you are still going to be at Elite Comics this weekend, I was planning to join you. I may have 2-3 friends that are only a couple items away from being in the Rebel Legion with me, if that's ok. These guys were in my wedding party last year, so you probably saw pics of them a while back and know the costumes are of great quality.

That's great, we'll be there for sure, and your friends should be OK, my son's trooping too and he's 10 years away from being a member.

It's been a while since the event, but I finally got some pictures up online to post here.

I met with Bart, his wife, and son a little after 11 (we were running late) at the comic shop. I had brought with me my wife Cristin, my nephew Tyler, and my friends Greg and Ben Fifer. (I am still trying to get Ben and Greg signed up with RL, but they haven't quite committed yet Wink.)

The couple of hours we were there was a lot of fun. There were a few other costumers there not in the RL, including a Green Lantern (John Stewart style), Hawkgirl, and Supergirl. We stayed outside for a good portion of the time we were there, since hte shop was a bit small and there were lots of people coming in and out. So, we basically guarded the doorway and greeted people as they came by.

A few stopped to get pictures with us, and the owner of the shop even got us some pizza to share for coming out and helping!

Here are a few pics from the event.

Me and Bart chatting it up:


One of many lightsaber duels throughout the day Very Happy


Everyone that showed up (right to left): Greg Davis, Ben Watkins, Cristin Thompson-Watkins, Tyler, Sarah German, Bart's son Marcus, Bart German, Ben Fifer.
