Head to your local comic-book shop on May 2, and you’ll come away with a stack of free comics. Publishers prepare exclusive offerings just for the occasion, and some just might turn you on to new series and authors.
The FCBD website has been updated with a bunch of the books that will be given away this year, and so far it’s a pretty good crop. Be on the lookout for a new Avengers story (from Marvel), a Love & Rockets sampler from Fantagraphics and the 25th anniversary reprint of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles No. 1 from Mirage Studios. The site continues to add previews, signings and more. Don’t forget that the books are available on a first-come, first-served basis, so you may want to arrive early. (From USA Today)
