Today is Free Comic Book Day, a great event for those looking to try out some new books or for those looking to catch up. It's also great for Inhumans research purposes.
Marvel's Inhumans actor Anson Mount, who plays King Black Bolt in ABC and Marvel's new television series, partook of the festivities today. He shared a photo on Twitter that showed him holding a trade of Marvel's Inhumanity series. The caption reads "Yay! Free comic book day! @SerindaSwan @IsabelleCornish @ellenwoglom @iwanrheon @emeikwuakor @TheRealStanLee" tagging his fellow Inhumans stars. Inhumanity was a storyline that took place after the Infinity event, which saw the Terrigen Mists released into the atmosphere, paving the way for a new generation of Inhumans. Whether this affects the show or not, it's still always good to see actors enjoying their character's past adventures.
This year's Free Comic Book Day titles include books like Betty & Veronica #1 (Archie Comics), Wonder Woman Special (DC Comics), Secret Empire (Marvel Comics), The Summer Blast FCBD edition (BOOM! Studios), Avatar (Dark Horse Comics), Doctor Who (Titan Comics), I Hate IMAGE (Image Comics), X-O Manowar Special (Valiant), Rick and Morty (Oni Press), and more.
Celebrating its 16th year, Free Comic Book Day is the comic book specialty market's annual event where participating comic book shops across North America and around the world give away comic book absolutely free to anyone who comes into their comic shops. The event is held the first Saturday in May and is the perfect opportunity to introduce friends and family to the many worlds of wonder available at local comic shops. From superheroes to slide-of-life to action/adventure and beyond, Free Comic Book Day has a comic book for everyone!
