It’s that time of year again. Free Comic Book Day is here, with a special Doctor Who comic FREE at your local comic book shop while stocks last!
Since 2002, the first Saturday in May has been Free Comic Book Day. As the name suggests, it’s a day when anyone can simply drop into their local comic book shop and pick up free comics from a special range. The initiative aims to encourage people to check out the incredible range on offer in comic book shops. And maybe even return to become regular customers throughout the rest of the year. Titan Comics have long been an ardent supporter and every year since 2015 there has been a new Doctor Who special issue.
This year is no different, with Doctor Who: Free Comic Book Day 2019 on shelves now. Starring the Thirteenth Doctor and her TARDIS Fam, it’s written by Jody Houser, with art by Giorgia Sposito. The regular cover is by Will Brooks, but Forbidden Planet have an exclusive alternate cover with art by Jessica Martin (pictured below). In addition, at 3pm today Forbidden Planet London will be hosting a special signing session by Martin.
Blogtor Who have already been to our local comic shop and picked up our issue so expect our full review shortly! In the meantime, you can read out art preview of the issue.
Doctor Who is just one of whole range of exciting free issue out today
Doctor Who is just one of a host of comic books participating in the event. The Avengers, Stranger Things, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Riverdale, Spider-Man and Catwoman are just some of the series featuring in free issues today. Some act as teasers of the content of their regular series but some, like Doctor Who, tell their own complete stories unprinted anywhere else.
