The view from Free Comic Book Day with "Fantastic Forum"

It was a fabulous time for Free Comic Book Day yesterday, as Billie Rae Bates of BRBTV was out and about doing all kinds of interviews for the "Fantastic Forum" TV show.

Many thanks to Cards, Comics and Collectibles of Reisterstown (shown in these photos) and Alliance Comics of Silver Spring, both Maryland shops, for their wonderful hospitality. The two stores were gloriously packed for the afternoon, and it was great to see so many people enjoying the event.

As one would expect from this weekend, the Avengers were out in full force, and BRB got to get both of the above guys on-camera to talk a bit about their costumes and these characters. We also chatted with Marc Nathan, owner of Cards, Comics and Collectibles and the organizer of the massively popular Baltimore Comic-Con, as well as Filip Sablik of Top Cow (below left), John Gallagher of "Roboy Red" and "BuzzBoy" (middle) and Steve Conley of "Bloop" (right).

Look for these Free Comic Book Day segments on upcoming episodes of "Fantastic Forum," the award-winning show that you can find in a whole lot of places:
