Saturday was a good day with so many people at Comic Warehouse for Free Comic Book Day. The tables were lined with free comics to check out as well as store discounts on comic book figures and trade paperbacks. Also, older comics were on sale so everyone walked out with something good.
I picked up my free comics as well as some cool dice to play d&d also a set of Joker dice for my daughter, which had a red Harley Quinn six sided die.
Wonder Woman Special Edition
Year One; part one starts with Diana when she was young and gazing into the horizon for something more challenging than what she has now. What makes this a special edition is that it gives the backstory of Diana and Steve before they first met on her island; before the chaos occurred and their lives were as normal as anyones. Take up the story in Wonder Woman (Rebirth) Vol 1: The Lies and Vol 2: Year One.
Keyser Soze: Scorched Earth plus The Rift
In the first story, Dan Metzheiser is a Justice Dept agent with an eye for patterns. For years, he’s been tracking the trace of a whisper of the name keyser Soze as an obsessive hobby. The man seems intent on solving the mystery. Follow his tracks in keyser Soze: Scorched Earth #1.
The Rift is a story of a single mother and her son whose lives change forever after witnessing a WWI fighter pilot from 1941 crash-land in present day Kansas. They find themselves drawn into a secret government organization. Follow their mishaps in The Rift #1.
Star Trek The Next Generation: Mirror Broken
Jean Luc Picard, Diana Troy and Data look amazing in the comic book. We know that Data is an android but he appears to be somewhat borgish in the comic. This is typical Star Trek style but its the mirror image of everyone so if you like the Next Generation series, you’ll love this issue. Continue the journey in Star Trek Mirror Broken issue #1.
Grimm Fairy Tales by Zenescope
A female thief was hired to steal a powerful artifact from a Sphinx. Since she had been caught stealing herself, she agreed to the job so she wouldn’t get punished. However, in the end, she was tricked into doing something that was in her nature but to her own demise. Read the continuing story in Grimm Fairy Tales #3 The Last Genie.
Catalyst Prime: The Event
The first issue begins with a series of incidents that occur to specific individuals with powers one week before the event. Then it breaks down the incidents to 30 minutes before the event, then 60 seconds to when the event happens. Follow the world of Catalyst Prime starting with Noble #1.
I always look forward to Free Comic Book Day because it puts you in contact with new comics so you can continue the series if you like the story.
