And creator Jeff Lemire (Ascender, Gideon Falls, Black Hammer) encourages fans visit their local comic shops on Free Comic Book Day, and pick up his new Black Hammer story in the Stranger Things comic book from Dark Horse.

FCBD, in its 18th year, is the idea of Joe Field, proprietor of the Concord, CA-based Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff. Inspired by the success of ice cream manufacturer Ben & Jerry’s Free Cone Day, he suggested that giving away comic books would expose a new generation of readers to that magical world. Sellers adopted the idea, and publishers agreed to release special issues in honor of Free Comic Book Day. “Each year, we continue to push ourselves to bring fans the very best Free Comic Book Day experience,” says Field.
