Echo Base made an appearance at Golden Eagle Comics in Reading, PA.

We were invited to attend and support Free Comic Book Day like last year, we did not disappoint. Members arrived at the store at 2 o'clock in the afternoon and provided support to the Garrison Carida troopers who were present at the store.

Intelligence remarked that the troopers present were station at the store at 11am, From this time, the store was very active. Rebel Recruit, Ryan Morelli (Luke Skywalker / ROTJ) and squire Sam Jimenez stormed the store (Ryan entered the store in costume, coming from 1UP Collectibles in West Reading, he didn't see a reason to dress down.) To the surprise of the two troopers there, more activity ensued. By 3 pm, Ryan and Sam decided to return to 1UP, but for an hour the troopers enjoyed hunting the young Jedi, but ultimately were foiled in the plan of capturing him.

It is my firm belief, from the reactions we had, the crowds thoroughly enjoyed having us there, and we've already been invited back next year. The owner was great, totally helpful with anything we needed, and seemed to enjoy having us there as much as we enjoyed being there.

Thanks to everyone who trooped, including our brothers in Carida, and to the owners, staff, and customers of Golden Eagle. It was definitely a great FCBD event, we look forward to attending again next year!

In Attendance:

Echo Base:
Ryan Miorelli as Luke Skywalker (Rebel Recruit)
Sam as Squire

Garrison Carida:
David Moyer as TIE Pilot
Stephanie Swanger as Stormtrooper


PR moment: Received this note on the night of 5/9/10
