We started our day with food on the way to Six Flags for their celebration of 80 years of Batman. We stopped at a diner we love in Crystal City, MO called Gordon’s Stoplight Drive-in.
Then we made our way to Six Flags.
You can see our full adventure in my video.
THE DAY HAS ARRIVED, MY FRIENDS!
It’s no secret: I was OBSESSED with Batman: White Knight. I wrote about how brilliant it was, which Sean Murphy was kind enough to share:
Let’s talk comics, shall we?
One of the quickly rising characters DC has introduced us to recently is The Batman Who Laughs. He became popular with Dark Knights Metal, the badass universe Scott Snyder envisioned and brought to life with Greg Capullo and so many others in 2017/2018.

I was lucky enough to hear Scott and some of the others discuss it all at the very beginning during Fan Expo Canada.
Another year, another Free Comic Book Day. And it was busy busy busy. This year we took my nieces on a big adventure to three shops – Villainous Grounds, All the Rage, and my local shop – Not Just Comix.
I will state before going into this, that it is important to remember that even though it is Free Comic Book Day, these comics are not free to shops, and it’s important you buy something as well as pick up your free comics. I didn’t have the most money on this trip due to Fan Expo crunch time, but I still made sure to buy something at all three shops – as did my mother, my brother, and the girls. Please support local shops and keep them in business.
First up: Villainous Grounds
