This is the 2015 Free COmic Book Day special! Today, in the US (and most of the world) it is FCBD, brought to you by Diamond Comics Distributors, where your local comic book stores have loads (around 50 this year ) of comic books for FREE! Now, some retailers can choose to make you buy a certain amount of stuff before giving them away, some charge a couple of pennies for them, and thats alright. The comics are free to us, but not to the retailers, so remember to buy some other stuff while youre there, support your LCBS, they will love you for it! Also, if you like these books, put them on your pull list, ask your LCBS how they handle those lists, I mean, a lot of these are big sales attempts anyway, if you like them, make them work!
This time around, Im going to give you my top 10 comics from FCBD, in relatively no particular order, Im not going to spoil you on them, but Ill give you a little bit on what they are.
Perfect Square comics
Three Pokemon comic stories, one from X/Y, One from Emerald, and one from Black & White.
Reads like a manga, so opens backward and reads left to right, instead of right to left
All New All Different Avengers
Two post-Secret Wars stories, one from the Avengers, and one from the Inhumans. You may be a bit confused on what the backstory is, but that's OK
Avatar: the Last Airbender
Dark Horse Comics
A post-television show story about Tai Lee & Toph
Also contains a Plants vs Zombies & Bandette story
Secret Wars #0
Not the full story of Secret Wars, and barely enough to be considered an episode 0, but if you are really confused, this may help.
Dark Horse Comics
A post-movie book about Sebastian
Also has The Goon & The Strain comics
NOT SAFE FOR CHILDREN
One of my favorite books
Boom Studios Ten Year Free Comic Book Day celebration
Lots of stories from the Boom Studios library
Worlds Unite prelude
Contains the Sonic the Hedgehog worlds unite prelude
The entire Worlds Unite is out on trade paperback. Why not pick it up when youre out at FBCD? ;)
Three amazing, only found in this book Doctor Who Stories from the 10th, 11th, and 12th doctors
a completely kid-friendly book about the characters from Street Fighter
A pleasant surprise, I wasnt really looking forward to this.
Attack on Titan
Some backstory (outside current Canon / TV canon)
Manga-style (opens to the left, read left to righ)
My favorite book
