Marvel has announced plans to release their 2020 Free Comic Book Day titles in July.
Originally targeted for release in May as a part of Free Comic Book Day, Marvel’s two books — along with every other title that was going to be offered to fans for free as a part of the annual event –were delayed when Diamond Comics Distributors announced that FCBD would be postponed this year due to the coronavirus pandemic.
Diamond has not announced a new date for the FCBD yet, and with Marvel’s books offering “a first look at some of Marvel’s biggest upcoming events,” it makes sense they’d want to get their two books out there before these “game-changing” stories start.
Their two titles, and their new release dates, are:
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2020: X-MEN
The first FCBD title from Marvel will arrive July 15 and will feature a story by Jonathan Hickman and Pepe Larraz that leads into the fall X-Men crossover event, X of Swords. It will also feature a second story by Tom Taylor and Iban Coello.
Marvel’s second title will feature Spider-Man, Venom and the Black Cat, by Donny Cates, Ryan Stegman, Jed MacKay, Patrick Gleason and others. It arrives a week later, on July 22.
Both comics will be free to fans
