Marvel Unveils Secrets of Free Comic Book Day


So Civil War II pits the team against Thanos? Does this mean the new Captain America movie will tie in even more directly with The Infinity War? That’s where the fun speculation begins. Marvel is also giving us a newly rejuvenated Steve Rogers, an all-new Wasp (Could her name be Hope?), and we’ll find out (maybe) who is “dead no more” among Spider-Man’s circle. It all sounds exciting. Just remember, kids: the first one is free… From Marvel:

The biggest heroes, the biggest creators and the biggest stories in comics are coming to FREE COMIC BOOK DAY! But before that exciting Saturday in May, get your first look at the covers to both of Marvel’s FREE COMIC BOOK DAY offerings right now!

First, FCBD CIVIL WAR II #1 peels back the curtain of the biggest event of 2016. Be there for the opening shots of CIVIL WAR II as Brian Michael Bendis and Jim Cheung give you the first taste of the conflict that will ignite the Marvel Universe later this year! Plus, this issue also features the highly anticipated debut of the All-New Wasp! Be there as she makes her debut, courtesy of All-New, All-Different Avengers writer Mark Waid and legendary artist Alan Davis! But is this mysterious character friend or foe?

Then, FCBD CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 brings you the titanic return of Steve Rogers as Captain America! Nick Spencer and Jesus Saiz bring you one of Steve’s first adventures since his dramatic return in the pages of AVENGERS: STANDOFF. Just in time for their new series Captain America: Steve Rogers #1 later that month! Then, go deeper into DEAD NO MORE, a top secret storyline coming later in 2016! If you got the chance to bring someone back, would you?
