In celebration of the annual event held by comic book retailers across the country, FBC will provide a free digital download to its readers, which will include previews of its published and upcoming graphic novels, as well as select staff and contributor reviews of comic books, movies, video games, and more! Readers will see a never-before-seen sneak preview of The Arcs, a graphic novel to be released later this year, as well as pinups by artist Michael Fitzgerald Troy for Basenjis vs. Shepherds, a web comic currently in development by Fanboy Comics.
Fanboy Comics’ Free Comic Book Day sampler will be available through the Fanboy Comics website starting on May 4th.
Founded in early 2010, Fanboy Comics (FBC) is an online conglomerate of geek media, providing its readers with daily reviews, interviews, and podcasts that span the pop culture spectrum. In 2011, FBC added independent comic book publisher to its credits, when it published its first graphic novel, Something Animal. The company’s second graphic novel, Identity Thief, was released in September 2012.
Fanboy Comics seeks to provide an outlet for up-and-coming artists and writers with a desire to create new works and media. By facilitating in-house collaborations and providing support and empowerment, FBC hopes to enable the production of professional and marketable creator-owned works.
On Free Comic Book Day, comic book fans in the Los Angeles area will find the Fanboy Comics staff at Brave New World Comics in Newhall, CA. Fanboy Comics will have a number of free items to give away to fans in attendance.
