It was a busy week here in Asheville. Among the many events happening were two back to back days full of geek awesome. Friday May 2nd was Spidey Con at Carolina Cinemas on Hendersonville Road. To commemorate the second installment of The Amazing Spiderman movies, the people at Comic Envy, Multiverse Asheville, and Carolina Cinemas put together a Spiderman celebration. Attendees could partake in themed food and beer, enter the costume contest, and watch the movie on the big screen.
May 3rd marked Free Comic Book day. Comic book shops across Asheville, including Pastimes, Hero Hunters, Comic Envy, and Orbit DVD opened their doors and passed out thousands of free comics to fans. If you missed this event, you can check out the titles that were available here. Each store celebrated this fun day with their own unique twist – from cosplay contests, to cook outs, game tournaments, and more. We went to 4 different shops in Asheville and took a pictorial review for your viewing pleasure.
