Free Manga Day!

Posted by: Katherine Dacey on January 26, 2007 at 12:35 pm

Mark your calendar! Newsarama reports that this year’s Free Comic Book Day will be held on Saturday, May 5th. In a sign of manga’s increasing market share, Tokyopop joins DC, Dark Horse, and Marvel as one of the day’s gold sponsors. Tokyopop’s freebie is a sampler featuring five of its newest shonen/seinen offerings: Archlord, Gyakushu!, Phantom, Utopia’s Avenger, and Warcraft: The Sunwell Trilogy.

Among the day’s other notable giveaways:

  • Owly & Korgi: For the younger comic book fan in your house. Top Shelf offers another near-wordless installment of crowd-pleaser Owly as well as a new series about a girl and her dog. (Guess the breed!)
  • The Lynda Barry Extravaganza: Publisher Drawn & Quarterly offers snippets of Barry’s best work.
  • The Umbrella Academy/Zero Killer/Pantheon City: Sneak peeks at three new Dark Horse series.
  • The Unseen Peanuts: Believe it or not, Fantagraphics unearthed nearly 100 Peanuts strips that have never been reprinted. My vote for best freebie of 2007.

I am so looking forward to this! My love of comics, and now my new found manga-obsession joined. The Peanuts strips are going to be so awesome to see.
