IIRC, the Transform and Rollout screencap digest was the IDW offering last free comic book day. Still, I might go pick up another copy of it this Saturday if none of the other free books seem interesting.

My shop is also doing a 75% off backissue sale, so reason to go enough already.

I'm going to try to go. Sounds like they're going to have the people that first formed Image Comics at the store I'm going to be going to.

Very clever IDW, hook them in with a free sampler, just in time for the Animated Comics to start up in a few months!

No big loss, really. All it is is a retelling of episode 2.

Guys, this is going to be the free comic book day edition. So did anyone get the same edition last free comic book day? I have the original edition I bought for $7 and I was wondering if there is any difference.

I'll pick up the FCB Day edition this Saturday, compare the two, and post if I notice any changes.

You asking if the FCBD comic is going to be the same as it was last year? Because they change them every year. Last year it was Movie Prequel #1, this year it's going to be the first comic release for Animated.

Edit: Assuming I'm able to go in for this tomorrow, I dunno if I'm actually going to get Animated as my free comic. There are figure in this toy line I'm interested in getting, but I'm not so interested that I'd pick this one up...
