Image Creators In Stores For FCBD
Published on Thursday, May 5, 2011 by

Every year on the first Saturday in May, publishers and local comic shops join forces in an event like no other: Free Comic Book Day! In an effort to introduce comic books to new readers and give established fans incentive to try something new or different, they are given free comics!

The Best of Creator-Owned Comics Celebrates Free Comic Book Day This Saturday

BERKELEY, CA – 5 May 2011 –
Image Comics is well known for introducing new titles in a variety of styles and genres to readers, so it’s only natural that the publisher has been reaching out to new readers by participating in FCBD since it began in 2002. With two new Image Comics FCBD titles at comic book shops across the country and an impressively extensive list of our best creators participating at signings, this year is no exception!

Of all the free comics available on FCBD, kids young and old won’t want to miss the SUPER DINOSAUR ORIGIN SPECIAL, the first new series published under Robert Kirkman’s Skybound imprint. This colorful all ages story is about a young boy genius and his best friend, a genetically-modified Tyrannosaurus Rex. For more information about Kirkman and artist Jason Howard’s SUPER DINOSAUR series and a link to download a preview of SUPER DINOSAUR #1 through comiXology’s Image Comics app, visit www.superdinosaur.com.

Our other free comic this year is wholly different from the light-hearted all ages title. DARKNESS II: CONFESSION is a prequel to the upcoming 2K game, Darkness II, which is based on Top Cow Productions’ long-running THE DARKNESS series. With art by both Michael Broussard and Romano Molenaar, this comic will give readers a glimpse into the tortured life of Jackie, the Darkness bearer. For more information about The Darkness II video game, visit www.embracethedarkness.com. For more information about THE DARKNESS, as well as many more Top Cow Productions comics, visit www.topcow.com.

Image Comics would also like to help spread the word about all the events that retailers have scheduled with our talented writers and artists on FCBD. We have compiled a list so that you might locate and visit all the comic shops in your area that are hosting your favorite comic creators.
