Those grabbing Marvel Comics’ Free Comic Book Day titles next year will be in for a double-dose of crossover-event foreshadowing.
Big events to come
There’s some big stuff on the horizon at Marvel Comics. Granted, that’s nothing new really, as Marvel always has massive events planned, year in and year out. So in the greater scheme of things, 2023 will be right here with the publisher’s usual plans.
Fans can expect both massive Spider-Man and Avengers/X-Men events, both of which have been in the works… well, since the last ones. Summer of Symbiotes and Fall of X, respectively, will deal out some major happenings in Marvel’s comic book U. And both will be launching with the 2023 version of Free Comic Book Day.
But while those books will be the main event for Marvel’s slate, there’ll be even more on tap, including a book for the younger set.
Here’s what’s coming up in 2023:
