It’s that time of year again. Today is the day for all of us to band together and support our local comic book stores. Thanks to the Free Comic Book Day Facebook page, we’ve compiled a list of some of the horror/sci-fi related titles that should be of interest to our readers:
Scooby-Doo! Team-Up – DC Comics
2000 AD – Rebellion/2000AD
Doctor Who – Titan Comics
And Then Emily Was Gone – Comix Tribe
Bodie Troll – Red 5 Comics
Attack on Titan – Kodansha Comics
Terrible Lizard – Oni Press
The Tick – New England Comics
That last one might seem like an odd choice, but a story about the Tick being haunted by the ghost of a previously unknown sidekick definitely qualifies. Seriously.
No participating comic book stores in your area? Fear not! Our unofficial celebrations usually include some goodies for you. Here’s a free streaming comic book from DARKTOP INC.:
It’s also worth noting how the theme music for this comic was created by Verse 13 especially for the series. Speaking of artists who were covered at Gravedigger’s Local 16 with a comic book connection, Michael Hedstrom has reissued his soundtrack for a horror comic and even included some new material! You can stream it for free at his Bandcamp page, but the comic is sold separately.
Happy Free Comic Book Day!
