If you’re a Star Wars fan then May the 4th should be a circled day in your calendar. Whether you celebrate it by Watching the Saga straight through, playing some LEGO Star Wars, reading some graphic novels, watching some Robot Chicken specials, bringing your action figure collection to a friends house to make bigger scenes, making Yoda pancakes, catching up on your X-Wing books, or listening to some Fan Fiction audio books, this is a day for all of us. This year however we got a double whammy because May the 4th was also Free Comic Book Day!! So not only could we do all the aforementioned activities but we could journey to our local comic shop and pick up some books on the house!!
Well this year was a hat trick for me. My wife and I recently joined up with the Saber Guild, a charity organization that raises money by dressing up as Lightsaber wielders and performing fights!! We were invited to Phat Collectibles by our sister organization The Dark Empire to troop for Free Comic Book Day and troop we did!
As my first event with this organization I had a great time. Taking pictures with kids and hanging with fellow Jedi is a great way for my May the 4th to go! Darth Vader made an appearance and Liz’s Aayla was very popular with the fans. I can’t wait for the next event where we’ll actually be doing a show! In the meantime check out the gallery and don’t forget to visit the links at the bottom! Joining up is a great way to becoming part of a larger world and becoming a real hero.
