Free Comic Book Day 2013: Infinity banner

I’m going to need to program Thanos into my spell checker since it looks like I’m going to be typing his name a lot over the next few years. Marvel Comics bad guy Thanos has already shown up in the pages of Avengers Assemble, and will soon have his own miniseries titled Thanos Rising, and he will also be featured in Marvel’s 2013 Free Comic Book Day offering.

Titled Free Comic Book Day 2013: Infinity, the issue will be written by Jonathan Hickman (Avengers, Manhattan Projects) with art by Jim Cheung (Avengers: Children’s Crusade). The story will feature the start to the next big Marvel event, as well as having a sneak peak at said event and a reprint of Thanos’ first solo story.

Check out the cover below and you can pick up the issue, as well as many other free issues from almost every other comic publisher, by heading down to your local comic store on May 4th, 2013 for Free Comic Book Day.

FUBAR-The Devil’s Dance Floor
Story and Art by Jeff McComsey
Cover and Pin Ups by Steve Becker
Fubar Press
Release Date: May 5, 2012 (In-Stores)
Release Date: April 17, 2012 (Digital Download)
Cover Price: Free!

I have to admit, at first the idea of reviewing a comic that will be coming out for free on Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) seemed odd to me. That is, until I realized just how many free-of-charge offerings will be up for grabs on FCBD. FUBAR: The Devil’s Dance Floor is one of those offerings, and with no price tag, this comic is a no-brainer when it comes to picking up comics on FCBD.

It is not stretch to say that the zombie genre has been done to “death” in comics. However, with the hordes of zombie comics that lurch their way onto shop shelves every week, there is at least one that stands above the rest. FUBAR: The Devil’s Dance Floor seems to intentionally go out of its way to avoid tired gross-out bits that are so commonly found in this type of comic, and instead focuses on an interesting story.

Fraggle Rock Comic Cover

The Jim Henson Company is responsible for the greatest puppet creations of all time, and they’re still going very strong. When word came that they would be heavily involved in the massive return of the Muppets as well as other puppet-related titles like a Dark Crystal sequel and a Fraggle Rock movie, we the children of the ’80s were elated.

While the various Muppet/puppet movies are still in development, other forms of entertainment are on the way to re-ignite an interest and an excitement in these worlds and the characters within them. One example of this is the brand new Fraggle Rock comic book by Jeffrey Brown that’s currently set for release in April. Fans will also have the chance to grab some Fraggle action when an issue is available during the beloved Free Comic Day.

Those of you who can’t wait will be happy to discover that MTV was able to get their hands on some goodies from the new series, including a look at the first cover and a sample of the Free Comic Book Day offering. Click the image above to see the cover of the first issue, and head over to the other side to check out the sample excerpt!
