Dark Horse Announces 2015 Free Comic Book Day Gold Offerings


What's better than free comic books? Visiting a comic book store and offering up your hard-earned cash for some books that include the hard-work of creators. Dark Horse Comics is a pretty big part of Free Comic Book Day and on May 2, 2015, the publisher will offer three heavy-hitters as part of their Gold offering. Those will include Fight Club 2 by Chuck Palahniuk and Cameron Stewart, a new tragedy in The Goon from Eric Powell and a new chapter in The Strain from Guillermo del Toro.

Acclaimed novelist Chuck Palahniuk continues one of his most beloved works with Fight Club 2, only in comics. This special FCBD short story revisits the final moments of the groundbreaking novel and is a great precursor to the new series launching in May. Eric Powell takes the Goon and Franky on an unexpected detour and The Strain examines one of the Master’s most terrifying allies with writer David Lapham and artist Mike Huddleston at the helm.

2015 promises to be Dark Horse’s biggest FCBD event yet, with not one, but two free comics, each packed full with three separate stories. Stay tuned for more details on the Free Comic Book Day: Silver Edition next week.
