DC Comics Rebirth & FCBD 2017 Spoilers? Will DC Comics Expand Their Free Comic Book Day 2017 Offerings To Include Dark Nights: Metal Teaser?

DC Comics Rebirth and FCBD 2017 Spoilers?

Based on the 2016 experience, it does not appear that DC Comics will have any significant new DC Rebirth related Free Comic Book Day 2017 (FCBD 2017) to tease its next big event Dark Nights: Metal. This is likely be due to the contents of previous offerings where they did tease their next big events and whose contents were often spoiled weeks in advance of FCBD; the free books from publishers ship over several weeks in April assuming retailers will keep them secret and allow them to prep for FCBD.

I miss the consequential FCBD teaser issues from DC Comics, but am still happy to see Wonder Woman get the start treatment this Free Comic Book Day 2017. There is movie coming out too with Wonder Woman on June 2, 2017 under a month from FCBD.

Press release:

      Saturday, May 6 is Free Comic Book Day, and DC Entertainment is proud to share with fans our favorite heroines of DC! In anticipation of the June 2 big screen debut of Wonder Woman, writer Greg Rucka and artist Nicola Scott share a story of her origins. This tale of how Wonder Woman came to leave Paradise Island, in order to help save the world from death and destruction, is part one of the upcoming graphic novel WONDER WOMAN VOL. 2: YEAR ONE, due out on May 3.

      Then it’s time to “Get Your Cape On” with a sneak peak of the next volume of DC SUPER HERO GIRLS: SUMMER OLYMPUS, courtesy of Shea Fontana and Yancey Labat, coming everywhere books are sold July 11. In this newest original graphic novel, catch up with the students of Super Hero High School as they find out that fun, friendship and hard work are all parts of growing up.

      Retailers worldwide will be providing both of these comics to fans on Free Comic Book Day, including a possible Gold or Silver edition of Wonder Woman (check with your local comic book shop to confirm).
