Don't Miss This Year's Free Comic Book Day!
More on this Saturday's Dawn of DC: Knight Terrors FCBD Special Edition #1! Including info on two Free Comic Book Day signings this weekend!
This Saturday marks one of my favorite days of the year - Free Comic Book Day! It’s a great opportunity for readers old and new to support local comic book stores by picking up some free issues and hopefully making a purchase or two while you’re there.
It’s always cool to see what publishers put out on FCBD, and this year is no exception. Popverse put out an article the other day that breaks down the full list of free titles from DC to Marvel to Image and plenty more!
The more relevant issue here is Dawn of DC: Knight Terrors FCBD Special Edition #1, the prelude to this summer’s huge horror event Knight Terrors. For more on that event, check out the announcement post I made last month:
But the FCBD Special Edition #1 one-shot kicks off the event in style with an all-new story about Damian Wayne featuring art from legends Howard Porter and Chris Bachalo! Here’s the cover from Jason Fabok & Brad Anderson, along with a sneak peek at the special FOIL version of this cover!
It’s been so much fun writing Damian again for Knight Terrors, especially with the Batman & Robin series on the horizon. The main inspiration for this story, and the event as a whole, was the Nightmare on Elm Street series, especially films one and three (Dream Warriors). When you look at that franchise and how the main characters were always teenagers, I couldn’t think of anyone more perfect for this than everyone’s favorite misanthropic Wayne teen!
I’ll also be celebrating FCBD in person with two separate signings! If you’re in the Portland area, come on down to either of these two spots and say hello:
The main thing about FCBD is that it’s an opportunity to express your love of comics and check out some cool new stories in the process. So have fun this weekend, and make sure to pick up your copy of Dawn of DC: Knight Terrors FCBD Special Edition #1 for a first look at the devilishly dark plans in the works at DC this year!
