I tweeted this awesome picture of the endcap last week from my local store in Wellington, Florida, where I signed copies of Ultimate Star Wars as part of Star Wars Saturday. It features many of the books and comics that will be highlighted at the event. We are fans of The Fangirls Guide To The Galaxy, Ms. Marvel, and Saga, among others, here at FANgirl Blog. I’ll be helping out at the Wellington location again at 7:00 p.m. tonight, bringing my fangirl passion to others. I encourage fellow fangirls to check out their local events.
