This year Free Comic Book Day falls on May 2nd as the first Saturday falls early this year. Looking at the line-up of comics this could be the best FCBD we’ve seen in years. Every year they have a comic or two that really stand out but this year we have a few big hitters.
DC comics Gold release still hasn’t been announced which could mean they haven’t decided what it is yet or it could be something really big like a Dawn of Justice prequel or something to tie into the upcoming movies. If we go off their previous Gold releases it could be the first in a new big DC event.
UPDATE: DC have announced their top secret comic as DC Ccomics: Divergence which will feature three 8 page comic previews of their upcoming partial reboot.
Marvel are kicking off their big event via FCBD with the first issue of Secret Wars. This was tipped to be one of the biggest events Marvel has launched in recent history and could change the whole way we read Marvel comics. One thing I am looking forward to is seeing what the new Battle World will look like.
Marvel also have a new Avengers series launching which looks to have the team from Age of Ultron as the Vision will be joining them. If you have been wanting to catch up on Avengers comics after watching the movies this will be a good time to start.
Th3rd World are returning for another FCBD. I’m a big fan of this indie publisher and the Stuff of Legends series. It’s like Toy Story but cooler and a lot more darker. Well worth a read if you can find a copy.
Aspen are releasing the 2015 copy of Worlds of Aspen. Last year give us preview of their upcoming series. They have done some great work in 2014 and always sell out quickly in my local comic book shops so this will be a good one to pick up to see what needs to be put on the standing order this year.
