IMAGE COMICS FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2016
December 21, 2015
Image Comics is pleased to announce participation in Free Comic Book Day 2016 with the fun, vibrant, all-ages titles—ODDLY NORMAL and Man of Action’s CAMP MIDNIGHT. Free Comic Book Day will take place Saturday, May 7th, 2016 at participating comic book shops worldwide.
CAMP MIDNIGHT will be the Gold Level free comic book from Image Comics and ODDLY NORMAL will be the Silver Level free comic book.
Seagle said, “I love that Image has made both its FCBD books all-ages comics. Camp Midnight is a book about kids that's for kids and adults alike. And best of all, the full 248 page graphic novel will be released right at the same time so anyone who likes the FCBD edition can dive right back in for the whole story.”
Katzenstein added: “I'm so happy that Image has made Camp Midnight their Free Comic Book Day book—it’ll be a great introduction to the spooky world of the comic, and hopefully leave everyone wanting more!”
“I'm thrilled and very honored that Oddly Normal will be a part of Free Comic Book Day in 2016,” said Frampton. “I hope that everyone who picks up a copy of Chapter 1 enjoys meeting Oddly and reading the start of her adventures!”
