Celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2019 with DC

Celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2019 with DC

By DC Thursday, May 2nd, 2019

This Saturday, May 4th is Free Comic Book Day, a yearly celebration devoted to spreading the good word about all things comics! If you’re new to Free Comic Book Day (or FCBD, as it’s called for short), you’re in for a treat. All day long, comic shops the world over will be handing out free comic books from a wide variety of publishers…including DC!

We kicked off the FCBD festivities a little early this year with the release of DC'S YEAR OF THE VILLAIN SPECIAL #1 and on Saturday, comic shops will also have preview chapters from DC Ink's UNDER THE MOON: A CATWOMAN TALE and DC Zoom's DEAR JUSTICE LEAGUE! Check out more on these celebratory books below!

 

DC'S YEAR OF THE VILLAIN #1

Evil is winning! Lex Luthor and The Legion of Doom conspire with Cosmic Gods, bending mankind toward a dark destiny. Elsewhere, the scourge of Leviathan spreads unchecked, seizing power in every corner of the world. And all the while the Batman Who Laughs busies himself in the shadows, aligned with no one—yet with sinister plans for all.

 

UNDER THE MOON: A CATWOMAN TALE

When 15-year-old Selina Kyle, the girl who will grow up to be Catwoman, becomes homeless, she must confront questions of who she is and who she will become.

From Lauren Myracle, the New York Times bestselling author of books like ttfn and ttyl, comes a new graphic novel that tells the story of a teenage Catwoman as she struggles to find her own identity while living on the streets of Gotham City. 

 

DEAR JUSTICE LEAGUE

Does Superman ever make mistakes? What was Wonder Woman's eleventh birthday like? Does Aquaman smell like fish? In this new middle-grade graphic novel, iconic heroes are asked questions both big and small, and when they are not busy saving the world, the Justice League even finds time to respond. Their honest and humorous answers will surprise and delight readers of any age, as it turns out that being a superhero is not too different from being a kid. 

 

 

TEEN TITANS: RAVEN

When a tragic accident takes the life of seventeen-year-old Raven Roth’s foster mom—and Raven’s memory—she moves to New Orleans to live with her foster mother’s family and finish her senior year of high school. 

From the #1 New York Times best-selling co-author of Beautiful Creatures Kami Garcia and artist Gabriel Picolo comes this first graphic novel in the Teen Titans series for DC Ink, Teen Titans: Raven. 

 

Best of all, the free comics are only the beginning! Many comic shops celebrate FCBD by hosting signings by some of your favorite comic creators. This year, DC writers and artists are participating in events across the globe. Check out the list below to see if any of them are in your neighborhood? Please note that all events are subject to change, so we suggest checking the shop’s website or social media account to confirm before heading down.
