IT’S FREE COMIC BOOK SUMMER! CELEBRATE WITH “DARK ARK: INSTINCT” ON JULY 22nd!

Free Comic Book Day returns! Except that this year, it’s been expanded into FREE COMIC BOOK SUMMER!  Starting July 15th and continuing every week for nine weeks, long awaited free-to-fans comics from a plentitude of publishers will arrive at participating comic shops everywhere.

AfterShock’s DARK ARK: INSTINCT, an all-new original story by series creator Cullen Bunn, with art by Antonio Fuso and cover by Juan Doe, debuts during Week 2 and will be waiting for you at participating shops starting Wednesday, July 22nd. It’s both a treat for the fans who have made DARK ARK one of AfterShock’s standout tentpole series and a perfect entry point for those who may be new to the story of the “other” ark – the one that the sorcerer Shrae was commanded to build to save the unnatural creatures of the world.

“DARK ARK delivers a one-two punch with terrifying beasts and personable, relatable characters.” – James Ferguson, Horror DNA

Here are just some of the stores across the United States and Canada (as well as in parts of Europe) at which you can pick up your free copy starting Wednesday, July 22nd!
