This Saturday is the 56th anniversary of the first appearance of Doctor Who! It’s also Local Comic Shop Day, so get out there and support your local comic book store. Several stores are having specials and events (Central Floridians may want to check out GoG’s Comic Shop Compendium on our website, http://www.guardiansofgallifrey.com.)
For locals: Sci-Fi City, our meeting host, has lots of stuff on sale; Bamf! Comics in Maitland is having a Nerd Craft Mini-fair; ACME Comics in Longwood is holding a Doctor Who Trivia contest; and Gods & Monsters on International Drive is having a Doctor Who party (wear a costume to get a free drink). Epic Comics on Alafaya Trail said “We will have our Doctor Who comics on sale for 20% off and watching the series throughout the day. Fans are welcome to come and take pictures with our TARDIS soda machine!”
So this Saturday, support your local comic shop — and celebrate Doctor Who!
