Dark Horse Announces 2013 Free Comic Book Day Offerings

Free Comic Book Day is a day of revelry, awesome sauce and free comics. And while Dark Horse isn't offering 2013 free comic books for Free Comic Book Day, they do have quite a variety of books for the big event on May 4, 2013.

Dark Horse will be offering up books featuring Darth Vader and Boba Fett, Captain Midnight, Avatar: The Last Airbender, R.I.P.D. and the True Lives of the Fabulous Killjoys, from Shaun Simon, Becky Cloonan and Gerard Way. Oh, and there's some action in Mass Effect, where a flight-school grad breaks the rules to prove himself in space.

On May 4th, make sure to do two things. Make sure the Fourth is With You and get your free comics on the day, headlined by some of the finest Dark Horse has to offer.
