Tomorrow is Free Comic Book Day 2014 at Fully Booked and Comic Odyssey! We’ve talked about titles that the kids will enjoy. We’ve also talked about the heavyweight titles, the ones that we think will be very popular. And we’ve talked about the titles that we think could be the most fun, as well as anthologies and guidebooks to help you up your comic cred. Today, we want to shine the spotlight on the hard-hitting titles for more mature audiences that will be among the selection of more than 50 titles available this FCBD:
1. Armor Hunters
FreeComicBookDay.com gives us the lowdown on this exciting Valiant offering:
The “Armor Hunters”, a group of the universe’s fiercest warriors, have come to destroy the X-O Manowar for the good of all. What horrible secrets does the armor hold? And how many armors have they destroyed before this one? These answers and more are revealed in the Valiant Universe event of 2014—and it all starts right here with exclusive previews, character designs, and interviews from the biggest guns the Valiant Universe has to offer!
It’s 2013 in Iraq, and the story involves a team out to nab the Butcher of Baghdad, but stumbles upon weapons of mass destruction in the form of… zombies! Didn’t see that coming, did you? “Shock and awe turns to bite and claw on the bloody sands of Iraq”!
“Behold the Berserkers! Quinn and crew find themselves facing uncomfortable truths as sins of the past come back to reveal themselves. Fans old and new won’t want to miss the first look at what’s on the horizon for Quinn and Jack! And in Midnight Tiger, sometimes all it takes to become a hero is an unfortunate incident and a single split second decision. The origin of Midnight Tiger!” (Taken from FreeComicBookDay.com)
4. Zombie Tramp
So… you’ve heard about The Walking Dead, right? But what about the street-walking dead? Meet Janey, the zombie tramp. And with this book, we get a look into her un-dead exploits. This issue also comes with Ehmm Theory (“the coolest comic you haven’t read, yet!”) in its pages.
“The Philosophers are an ancient secret order of magic-users who protect Earth. One of their number, Ishmael Stone, known as Philosopher Rex, has assembled an elite team, called The Intrinsic to deal with the most serious threats from the outer realms. The team includes: Kade, the immortal warrior; Kore, the massive Demon-spawn; Kinetic, master of mental powers; Jas, a young spiritual warrior monk; and Candice Crow, the living embodiment of heat. But how will The Intrinsic react when they are called not to protect the Earth, but to protect themselves from it?” (Taken from FreeComicBookDay.com)
6. Far from Wonder
“Put to rest any delusions or disinformation you have of the tea-guzzling madman of faux literary history and prepare to expand your consciousness as the saga of Hatter Madigan and his relentless search for the lost Princess of Wonderland unfolds in Issue 1 of the Hatter M series!” (Taken from FreeComicBookDay.com)
7. 2000 AD
Who doesn’t like a little dread in their life? Judge Dredd, that is. But wait, isn’t that him hanging up his uniform? Well, whatever the case, The Honorable Dredd (judge or not) graces the cover of this anthology from 2000 AD in their FCBD 2014 offering.
8. Hip-Hop Family Tree
Sup, G? This is a full color, two-in-one book, an introduction to the critically-acclaimed Hip-Hop Family Tree series by Ed Piskor, targeted at more mature readers and fans only!
We’re really excited about having everyone, young and old, over for FCBD 2014! Just some reminders: If you come to Fully Booked Bonifacio High Street, you stand to receive three free comic books, no strings attached! Other participating branches will be giving away one comic book per person. And we’d like to let you know that not all titles will be available at all branches.
