Beware the sting of the All-New Wasp! FCBD CIVIL WAR II #1 will also feature a special second story from All-New, All-Different Avengers writer Mark Waid and legendary artist Alan Davis. Be there as this mysterious new character makes their big debut! Are they friend or foe? How will their coming impact on the lives of the All-New, All-Different Avengers? The answers may surprise you, True Believer!”

FCBD Captain America #1

“Steve Rogers is returning to comics this May, and you can get your first taste on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. Today, Marvel is pleased to unveil FCBD CAPTAIN AMERICA #1, featuring the reinvigorated 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 and get you caught up just in time for the release of Captain America: Steve Rogers #1, coming to comic later that month!

But that’s not all! FCBD CAPTAIN AMERICA #1 will also feature a second all-new story and a special prelude to DEAD NO MORE, giving fans their first look at the blockbuster storyline coming later this year. If you got a chance to bring back someone who died, would you? And how will CLASSIFIED deal when ones they thought long dead once again walk the earth? Find out on FREE COMIC BOOK DAY”

FCBD Suicide Squad #1

“In anticipation of the August 5 big screen debut of Suicide Squad writer Adam Glass and artist Marco Rudy introduce you to the villains that take on the dirtiest jobs in the DC universe with a special edition issue of Suicide Squad #1, the first chapter of the iconic graphic novel SUICIDE SQUAD VOL. 1: KICKED IN THE TEETH.

Then it’s time to “Get Your Cape On” with a sneak peek of the highly anticipated original graphic novel DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: FINALS CRISIS, courtesy of Shea Fontana and Yancey Labat. Retailers worldwide will be providing both of these comics to fans on Free Comic Book Day, Saturday, May 7.”

FCBD Super Hero Girls #1

“Class is in session! Welcome to DC Super Hero High! DC Super Hero Girls is an exciting new universe of superhero storytelling that builds character and confidence and empowers girls to discover their true potential. This special FCBD issue features two exciting, action-packed stories from the upcoming original graphic novel DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: FINAL CRISIS that readers of all ages will enjoy.

It’s the day before finals and the student body is hard at work…and nothing is going right! Wonder Woman spars with Cheetah in gym class as Batgirl and Supergirl watch from the sidelines. In the next class, the girls sit next to an empty seat. Where could Supergirl be? Don’t miss this chance to meet the students as they find out that fun, friendship and hard work are all part of growing up!”
