Dark Horse Comics is once again a Gold Sponsor for Free Comic Book Day 2018, and the publisher shared details on what it is bringing to the table, where you’ll get Overwatch and Black Hammer – FOR FREE!
The Overwatch story boasts art from Niemczyk with Andrew Robinson (Starman) and Joelle Sellner (Mer) uniting to write the adventures of Zarya. In Overwatch: Searching, Sergeant Aleksandra Zaryanova is sent to eliminate the elusive hacker, Sombra. To do so, she reluctantly teams up—and butts heads—with an omnic hacker. As they hone in on their target, Zarya realizes that she will have to reassess her worldview about omnics.
In the world of Black Hammer—a thousand years in the future—a collection of teenage superheroes, inspired by the legendary heroes of Black Hammer Farm, are determined to solve the riddle of what happened to the last great heroes of the twentieth century. Black Hammer creators Jeff Lemire (Descender) and Dean Ormston (The Sandman) return to their opus as writer and artist respectively with Wilfredo Torres (Moon Knight) joining Ormston in illustrating and Dave Stewart (Hellboy) providing his colorist skills to the project.
Free Comic Book Day takes place on the first Saturday in May (May 5, 2018). If your local comic shop isn’t participating, you need to find out why not, and then encourage them to do so.
