FCBD 2013 in London

After much anticipation and (what feels like) an exponential growth in FCBD’s reputation year on year, I wanted to share some pictures of my own experience of the day in ol’ Blighty.

I visited 2 shops in the centre of town and was basically attacked with free books from all angles… among a huge swarm of fans, all piling into the shops and celebrating their passion together.

It was cool to hang out with like-minded fans and cheerfully chat freely about art and storytelling and movies and industry gossip, with people whom love these things as much as I do, if not more so.

There was a perfect amount of comedy too, costumes and cosplay everywhere.  A fun and funny atmosphere and a great day for the local shops with an organised foot-flow unmatched by other industries.

An all-round good laugh with a bunch of familiar weirdo’s… I loved it!

Good pics Danny. I’d like to check that place out. Haven’t been near London since 1982. I’d like to go back.

Yeah come over, I’ll show you where to go and you can school me on what to buy 🙂

PS: I was born in 82… just fyi.

I was with the U.S. Navy then. Haven’t done any international travel since then, but I’d love to. Enjoyed Trafalgar Square, or was that Picadilly square? Oh, well, it was some square with this cool bar located near the center. As far as what to buy, stick to the classics, if you can afford them. As far as new comics, I only buy what I like to read because I don’t think much of anything new is going to become very valuable. I’m betting even “The Walking Dead” will drop precipitously once the TV show is gone.
