Riverdale Gets an Original Comic Story for Free Comic Book Day 2019
As a prelude to a brand-new series of original comics based on The CW’s hit TV series, Riverdale, Archie Comics will be releasing a special one-shot comic book for Free Comic Book Day 2019. The event, falling on May 4, 2019, is an annual tradition at comic shops throughout North America where fans can pick up a wide array of comic books for free.
The special FCBD issue will feature a new comic by novelist Micol Ostow and longtime Riverdale artist Thomas Pitilli, along with a special preview of Ostow’s prequel novel, Riverdale: The Day Before, which goes on-sale this month.
In FCBD Riverdale Season 3, it’s picture day at Riverdale High, and the student council has opened the polls for class superlatives. As the gang preps for their closeups the ballot box goes missing . . . and everyone’s a suspect!
