In other posts, Marc Bernardin is among those looking forward to Betty White’s “Saturday Night Live” hosting gig in a few days. I echo his sentiments and can’t wait to what she’s got in store. And speaking of stores, most of the comics industry had some stake in Free Comics Book Day, which was going on in stores across the country on Saturday. I including a few postmortem thoughts after the jump, where you can also find out who ran into Adam Sandler on his Hawaiian vacation.
It’s documented in the Twitter Report for May 3, 2010.
