Free Comic Book Summer Titles Available on September 2!

Free Comic Book Summer is in full swing! We've reformatted Free Comic Book Day to take place over the course of the summer, from July 15th through September 9th, so shops can celebrate safely and in ways that adhere to store capacity guidelines and safety regulations. What that means for you guys is free comics each week! 

Between July 15th and September 9th, local comic shops will be getting five to six Free Comic Book Day titles each week to give out to customers completely free! Keep in mind, Free Comic Book Summer is designed to be fully customizable for comic shops so they can find a celebration plan that works for them and their customers. That means, not all comic shops will give out the free comics as soon as they arrive. Some many hang on to them until the weekend, give out one title a day, or anything else that works for them! Be sure to contact your local comic shop before heading out to find out how/when they're giving out the free titles.

Now, let's take a look at the Free Comic Book...ahem, Summer titles available beginning on August 26:

 

TEN SPEED PRESS
(W) Tom Scioli (A/CA) Tom Scioli
A graphic novel biography of Jack Kirby, from his days growing up during the Great Depression and discovering a love for sci-fi, to his time on the frontlines of World War II where he experienced the action he'd later imbue his comics with, and on to his collaborations at Marvel with Stan Lee, where the pair redefined comics. Eisner-nominated artist, Tom Scioli, whose work is greatly influenced by Jack Kirby, expertly captures the evolution of Kirby's artstyle throughout the years.

GRAPHIX
(W) Andy Runton (A/CA) Andy Runton
All Owly wants is a friend... Owly is a good-natured little owl, and he's always helping those around him. But despite his kindness, he seems to frighten would-be friends away before they even give him a chance, just because he's an owl. That all changes, though, once Owly meets Wormy. Like Owly, Wormy is in need of a good friend, too - someone who can be counted on for a helping hand, a good laugh, and a great adventure! Through a unique blend of words and symbols, Owly can be read by the youngest readers, and is a great introduction to graphic novels!
