Free Comic Book Day, Part 2

John here, friends, and I'm here to talk to you about a specific subset of cosplay that we ran into at Comic Envy:

STAR WARS, MOTHERFUCKER

STAR WARS, MOTHERFUCKER

That's right, people. The Wars. For those of you who don't know, I have a lot of feelings about Star Wars. But that's neither here nor there at this juncture. Let's talk about the 501st Legion.

That's right fans, Vader's Fist was there! There was a standard trooper and two TIE Fighter pilots. There was also a Jedi Knight!
