Some fans might have been wondering when scheduled FCBD comics might make their way to shops. For Marvel, it’s been revealed to be next month.
Free Comic Book Month
Certainly not the biggest of the events to see cancellation in the face of coronavirus, Free Comic Book Day was nevertheless a casualty. The annual comic book giveaway was slotted in for May the 2nd originally, but was left with a “summer” tag in the wake of the pandemic.
Now though, the contagion is at least starting to wind down. As a result stores are starting to open up again, and some companies are ready to announce when their own freebies will be arriving. Chiefly, that’s a list that includes one Marvel Comics.
The Disney-owned giant has revealed its plans, which include the release of its pair of offerings, on a pair of dates.
- Available on July 15, FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2020: X-MEN will feature a brand-new X-MEN story by Jonathan Hickman and Pepe Larraz that will lead into the game-changing X OF SWORDS crossover! The second story will also foreshadow an upcoming epic tale by Tom Taylor and Iban Coello.
