Free Comic Book Day can be a hit and miss in affair in the UK, with some stores participating and some not.
Last year I managed to get some good ones from Daves Comics in Brighton.
How will these be transfered onto your handheld and digitally though? Already WOWIO have advertised that they are participating, but so far, no others.
Last year Comixology released an Atomic Robo FCBD edition – both as a stand alone app and on there Comics app.
Now iVerse and Comixology seem to be increasing their catalogue there seems to be more chances.
Below is a list of free comics being released…

Now from this list there are a few which may be possible!
- Archie’s Summer Splash! #1
- Iron Man / Thor
- Irredeemable #1
- Iron Man: Supernova
- Atomic Robo and Friends
- The Stuff of Legend: Mortal Instruments
The list is based on what titles are already available on the apps
Maybe Marvel will release them on their own app, also there is the chance that Dark Horse will provide their own as stand alone apps. I think that there isn’t much chance we will get to see them straight away, but hopefully soon.
