Free Comic Book Day -- The only comic from this year's batch that really struck me was Drawn and Quarterly's Nancy/Melvin flip book, which caught my eye with its design (by Seth) and won me over with its charming stories printed on paper made to look like a vintage comic book. An excellent package.

Did not see the Love and Rockets comic, although after all these years it's safe to say it was probably wonderful. Comics Festival disappointed me by seeming pretty scattershot, like pictures of people having fun from a party I wasn't invited to. One or two of the strips amused, but the overall package didn't knock my socks off like the 2007 edition did.

Everything else I picked up was crap of varying degrees. I guess the days of publishers putting their best foot forward for FCBD are pretty far gone unless you're a boutique artcomix publisher.
