The next Free Comic Book Day might not be until May of next year, but Dark Horse Comics has already announced the books you’ll be taking home on the house for the yearly event.
Free Comic Book Day has really become something pretty big in recent years with all the big companies participating and the quality of the ‘on the house’ booty going through the roof. This coming year looks to continue the trend as Dark Horse is prepping a lineup of giveaways that’ll definitely make pretty much anyone smile.
A pair of books are on the docket, with each one containing three stories from some of the biggest books DH publishes.
In addition to new stories from your current Dark Horse favorites, Dark Horse will debut the long-awaited True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, from Shaun Simon, Becky Cloonan, and Gerard Way.
First up, an all-ages adventure! Star Wars joins fan-favorite villains Darth Vader and Boba Fett. Then explore the upcoming Dark Horse series Captain Midnight, where the search for the missing superhero is on. And the smash hit Avatar: The Last Airbender follows Mai as she deals with her broken heart . . .
Next, in R.I.P.D., a séance goes terribly wrong. Then, in Mass Effect, follow a flight-school grad as he breaks the rules to prove himself in space. Finally, check out the police-state landscape of the highly anticipated miniseries The True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys.
All in all, that’s a very solid slate of freebies. Look for ’em in comic shops this coming May the 4th.
