Free Comic Book Day 2015

Here are some images and video of some of the local comic shops that the Florida Geek Scene staff ventured to on this years Free Comic Book Day. Below is a slideshow of images from FCBD at Heroes Landing in Clermont Florida owned by Todd Merrick, which always puts on a great FCBD and has an abundance of attendance on the west side of town and this years guests included local artist Jon Pinto and DC and Marvel Comics artist Freddie Williams II. I always have a great time visiting this local comic shop.
