Marvel Comics’ Free Comic Book Day offering, which was first announced in November, has received fresh information. 2023’s Free Comic Book Day titles will also highlight creators and characters from various cultures, communities, and identities and serve as the ideal first comic for new readers. These Free Comic Book Day books will serve as lead-in stories to the biggest comic book sagas of 2023, including Fall of X and Jonathan Hickman and Valerio Schiti’s upcoming epic.
