Just a few more days to go until Free Comic Book Day 2015 at Fully Booked & Comic Odyssey!
On our last blog entry, we talked about the the #FCBD2015 titles for young readers and newbies to the world of comics; and the good news is, there’s more! Here’s Part 2 of that same list:
First up is DC Comics’ Teen Titans GO!, which is always a crowd pleaser. Think of your favorite DC Heroes, but scaled back a decade or two, with an approachable, kid-friendly art style to match. This all-ages title offers a double-whammy of stories: first, Teen Titans Go! Chapter 10, and Scooby Doo Team Up! #6 featuring the Super Friends!
And who can shake Sonic The Hedgehog? This title, like Teen Titans, is another one-two punch, in this case, shared with Sonic’s super Sega-land buddy, Megaman!
Yes, at FCBD there’s always ‘more than meets the eye’ (wink, wink)! Everyone’s favorite robots in disguise are back in this Transformers Gold Book. FreeComicBookDay.com gives us the lowdown on this exciting title:
Optimus Prime is gone-and Decepticons are on the loose! It’s up to Bumblebee and an elite crew of Autobots to track them down before their rampage spreads across Earth! TRANSFORMERS comics have never been hotter, and the excitement spreads to this all-original comic inspired by the all-new animated series! Plus: previews of IDW and Hasbro unbelievable publishing slate for 2015, including an exclusive TRANSFORMERS VS. G.I. JOE strip!
March Grand Prix is next on our list, and this Silver Book from Kean Soo (creator of the award-winning Jellababy) is filled with high-speed action. It also features a ‘full tank of bonus materials: creator Q&A, pinup art, and much more!’ Learn more at its FCBD profile here.
Gronk is a monstrous tale about–you guessed it!–a monster, and not a very good one. Although who’d have guessed–look at that cute face! Oh wait…he’s about to chow down on that little kitty!
And to close our list of offerings for the young ones, we leave you with a title from the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund (CBLDF), Defend Comics which is working to ensure that the world of comics has a long and happy future ahead of it:
For over 25 years, the CBLDF has fought to protect your right to read, and that crusade continues with this light-hearted look at a serious topic. Defend Comics is a sampler of the great YA comics available, and explores the censorship of comics with some of today’s most talented creators!
Writers on Defend Comics include Andi Watson, Gene Yang, George O’Connor, Dan Parent, Larry Marder and Jorge Aguirre, with art by Watson, Sonny Liew, O’Connor, Parent, Marder, and Rafael Rosado.
Stories include “The Green Turtle Fights for Free Speech!” by Gene Luen Yang and Sonny Liew, “Rabbids!,” “Princess Decompsia and Count Spatula” by Andi Watson, “Beanworld” by Larry Marder, “Archie Presents Kevin Keller” by Dan Parent, “Giants Beware!” by Jorge Aguirre and Rafael Rosado, and “A Tale of the Olympians: The Ears of King Midas” by George O’Connor.
