Dark Horse Announces 2015 FCBD Silver Offering


FCBD 2015 promises to bring with it all manner of free books, general jovialness and Bandette making mischief. Well, the last part will be done on behalf of Dark Horse, whose Silver Offering will feature all new stories from Avatar: The Last Airbender (by Gene Luen Yang and Carla Speed McNeil) and Plants vs. Zombies.

Recently passing the 500,000 sales mark and counting, Plants vs. Zombies dishes out a new battle. As he works on a strange new invention, Dr. Edgar Zomboss sends three unique zombies into battle against neighborhood defender Crazy Dave. Will Tugboat, Frogpants and Nigel Blimpbottom be a match against Dave’s niece Patrice, young adventurer Nate Timely, and a plucky pack of backyard plants? Plus Paul Tobin & Colleen Coover’s Eisner Award–winning Bandette returns with a tale of the mischievous cat burglar called “Theft at the Theater!” in which Bandette and her crew target high society to steal an important cultural artifact—and some fun.

This promises to be Dark Horse’s biggest Free Comic Book Day yet, with two free comics, each packed with three separate stories. Dark Horse Comics’s Gold offering was announced last week and will feature Chuck Palahniuk’s Fight Club, Eric Powell’s The Goon & Guillermo del Toro’s The Strain. Dark Horse offers up the best of the very best for next year’s Free Comic Book Day, taking place exclusively at your local comic shop on May 2, 2015.
