Aspen Comics Announces Free Comic Book Day 2015 Festivities


Aspen Comics plans to follow up a busy April of nearly back-to-back convention appearances with a good showing on Free Comic Book Day on Saturday May 2. The publisher will be offering their FCBD flipbook that boasts two all-new zero issues for Fathom: Blue and Eternal Soulfire, spotlighting new characters within the already familiar universes. Aspen creators and artists will also be attending Free Comic Book Day signings this Saturday at a variety of comic stores from California to New York to Mexico.

Fathom: Blue features a cast of Blue misfits and exiles living in secret on the surface world. Forced into fighting alongside one another against their own kind by the U.S. government, success is betrayal but failure means certain death. Aspen Editor-in-Chief Vince Hernandez writes the series, with Claudio Avella penciling and Erick Arciniega providing colors. Eternal Soulfire stars a powerful but young new magic user named Cassidy, thrust into the world of magic with both wings and a target on her back. The fierce Rahtumi warrior Miya, seeks to protect Cassidy and escape those seeking to kill them and the demons of the past…but that’s easier said than done. Aspen’s Mindfield team J.T. Krul and Alex Konat, is reunited for this new title, with colors by Federico Blee.
