Free Comic Book Day!

What a great time Gabby, Mason and I had at Sarge's this past Saturday! It was great to see a lot of my friends/fellow creators at the event along with a great amount of kids! I drew free sketches for any kids that walked by...let's just say I drew a TON! Got some free books myself and bought some good ones too! All in all a good time. Pretty exhausted by the time I got home though...
