Aye, I moaned about this to Forbidden Planet once. Turns out that they're all franchises in Scotland (all of about 1 or 2), so they don't have to have these offers but still might. Worth an ask if your in the area, but I don't remember Glasgow's "Comic Book Guy" being very happy to give stuff away...

according to the forbidden planet website, the actualy comic giveaway if on the 23rd. The 26th is just their unvailing of a new line of batman merch: forbiddenplanet.com/eve…cs/

I thought that Forbidden Planet split into two separate companies a while back, which is why there are two separate websites (.co.uk and .com). I think the ones in Scotland are part of one chain, while those in England are predominantly the other...

Thanks for explaining this, I was a bit baffled when I read this earlier. And darn, I would like some Bat-freebies :(!
