Free Stuff: Free Comics @ Videosyncratic, Cowley Road

I did not take this picture, kamshots did. I would not have included the badly-dressed girl. But crucially, this is what the shop looks like. GO GO GO. 101 Cowley Road.

In homage to Broke-Ass Stuart’s Goddamn Website, my current obsession & that which makes me want to live in the Mission

Videosyncratic, aka my next-door neighbours on the Cowley Road, are having a FREE COMIC BOOK DAY today (2nd May) until 6 p.m. with HUGE PILES of comics absolutely free. Titles include Avengers, Green Lantern, Star Wars, Simpsons, Wolverine, Archie, Manga, Transformers, Aliens/Predator, Batman and more. ALSO, apparently they have special guests including

JOHN CHAPMAN (Star Wars Actor):

DAN ABNETT (2000AD, X-Men, The Punisher, Doctor Who, Torchwood) – blogging about the day here.

RICHARD ELSON (2000AD, er and lots of other things including THE BEANO, dude)

SIMON DAVIS (2000AD, Justice League of America, Spawn)

All graphic novels, posters, toys and t-shirts are also 25% OFF. I, personally, do not care about graphic novels, comics or indeed most of the above (except, er, Doctor Who and sayitquietly Torchwood),* but that does sound like A LOT OF FREE STUFF and A LOT OF COOL PEOPLE. Go and spend little or no money and yet heap yourselves with SWAG.

Seriously guys, get down there, the two boys who run the shop are dressed as Spiderman and Superman, and last time I saw them they were being laughed at by the little veteran in a kilt who has no teeth and is often covered in poppies. Go on. East Oxford Community Centre is also running a Chinese Charity Day with a lot of very good and very cheap Chinese food (on til 4), so go GET AND NOT BUY a comic, then eat some noodles. I do love the place where I live.

*note: this is not an assertion of superiority. I care deeply about detective fiction and musical theatre.
