Tomorrow is Free Comic Book day and I cannot be more excited!!
Free Comic Book day is held every year on the first Saturday of May. Over the past couple years due the popularity of films based on comic book properties, conventions, and word of mouth; the events have gotten bigger and bigger. I will be heading down to my local comic book store, Nuclear Comics in Lake Forest, CA for this event. I’ve been going there since 2006 for my comic needs, and Kenny, the stores owner, is an awesome guy who knows his stuff and makes sure you get what want while giving suggestions on his personal favorites. There will have a few special guests at store, including Amy Memberson (My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic) and Greg Hinkle (The Rattler).
Last year, there were a couple manga samplers amongst the many free comics. This year there are some nice Manga goodies to be had.
Viz Media has two samplers this year. First, a Pokemon Pocket Comics previewing Legendary Pokemon.
The second one from Viz will be a preview of One Punch Man, One, and My Hero Academia compiled into one volume.
Kodansha Comics will have a free preview of their upcoming Attack on Titan Anthology. There are a list of current artists in the project on Anime News Network, but no word on which of them made it into this years preview.
Last but not least, Udon Entertainment will be sending out a preview on their current Street Fighter V comic.
Hopefully you’ll all be out and about tomorrow to pick up all your free comics! Enjoy!
