    Have you been out to Graham Crackers Wheaton yet to visit with Chicago Force Black Sun members? Has it been a while since your presence has graced the hallowed halls of comicdom?
    Well now is the time my fellow geeks. This Saturday is the day. The day of reckoning is here. Yes, I speak of FREE COMICS! No just FREE COMICS, but FREE CLONE WARS COMICS!!

    Chicago Force Black Sun members will be hanging out this Saturday at Graham Crackers Wheaton during Free Comic Book Day. We will be on hand to show off a bit of our members collections, maybe play a game or two, and just generally hang out. Stop by at any time. The store opens at 10am.

    We have also discussed heading out to see Spidey 2 at Yorktown Cinema after the day closes. So it will truly be a Comic Day.

    I'd like to tell everyone that if you can't make it out to Graham Crackers in Wheaton, by all means, visit your local comic shop to claim your free comic book. Free Comic Book Day is a nationwide event, encouraging people to visit their comic book stores and see what current comic books have to offer. Visit www.freecomicbookday.com for a list of the different publishers' comics and to find a participating comic book shop near you.

    I will be there on Saturday... however, I will not be getting there until after it starts. I have to renew the lease on my apartment, and Saturday morning is the only time they could fit me in before the special deal expires.

    So I'll get there ASAP on Saturday, and stay through the store's closing.

    Well enjoy all! I have to work Sat. but I've already gotten my FREE Clone Wars and FREE Spiderman comic. So I'll have to stop by a shop closer to my place on the way home from work and swipe any others I want. But enjoy the time with toys and friends.

    There was some debate as to whether the store closes at 5 or 6, but certainly 6 at the latest.

    Yes, the plan is to go see Spider-Man 2 afterwards, at one of the theaters out Wheaton-way....

    Well, you asked what time the store closes.... ;)

    I don't think we've chosen a showtime yet. Carrie, did you have any ideas on that?

    It might be advisable to pick a showtime and buy in advance. There probably will be sellouts on opening weekend.

    The show time is up for debate, which I can't participate in. See, I have to work at 3pm. And when I work at the bank on a Saturday, you stay until the work is done. I've gotten out as early as 7:30 and as late as 10. So I can't commit to a time, so what everyone else decides, I will try to make.

    I'll be there.

    I might be a little late for the 10am opening.

    had a great time....wow....Graham Crackers sure got a lot of traffic yesterday....

    R2 says he enjoyed getting out too..
    ;)

    I also enjoyed going out to breakfast and to Target in costume and embarassing the crap out of my friend Sue..
    she was telling everyone that she didn't know me and the strange Jedi was only following her....
    [face_laugh]

    Speaking of Target....Phil...I went in there looking for Star Wars toys...and I bought for you the Luke X-Wing figure/Cup duo that you have on your want list....you can take that one off your list....

    It was a good time. Hanging out in the back room, reading comics, listening to the Cubs/Sox game through multiple rain delays... no group outing to see Spider-Man 2, though. Ah well!
