Free Comic Book Day 2010
It’s only just a few days shy of 6 months until the next Free Comic Book Day. The annual event takes place on the first Saturday in May and this year will take place on May 1, 2010.
The first round of comics has been announced and so far there’s some good ones. A new G.I. Joe project by Larry Hama that’d seem to pick up from the original Marvel series, the next DC event War of the Supermen, and a sneak peek at the return of Solar, Man of the Atom and Magnus: Robot Fighter.
