FREE COMIC BOOK DAY is ALMOST Here!

featuredimage13

There are ONLY 26 days LEFT until FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2016! 

Here, at Soundwave, we'll be having sales & deals, guest artists and creators, along with an auction and costume contest! So, we've got a day we know you're all looking forward to.
On that day, you'll also find that this is the BIGGEST FCBD, yet! It's the 15th anniversary, and everyone's got a great FCBD comic coming on that day! There will be a total of 50 free comics available for that day, and as usual we'll be doing three free comics, per person, on that day. BUT, if you want to get ALL 50, we have special deals for everyone to get in on that'll help you rack up the number of free comics you'll receive on that Saturday.

Our first two promotion deals are already posted up, here, on SoundwaveComics.com.

For the first promotion deal, which involved the MARVEL: SEASON ONE graphic novels you can click HERE.

If you pick up any of the Season One graphic novels, you'll receive the twelve gold sponsor FCBD comics. The more Season One graphic novels you buy, you'll receive twelve more FCBD comics per graphic novel.
The Season One graphic novels are original stories that retell the earliest adventures and origins of Marvel's most popular superheroes and modernizes them, and creates an over-arching story between previously-unconnected stories. These are great for not only new readers, but old readers who may want a fresh take on the earliest stories they're familiar with.

For the second promotional deal, which involved the MARVEL ESSENTIAL trade paperbacks, you can click HERE.

If you pick up any of the Essentials, it's the same deal we have on the Season Ones, where if you buy one of them, you'll get twelve of the FCBD comics. To add, though, if you get one of the Essentials after buying one of the Season One graphic novels, it's the same deal. The more you buy, the more you will receive. You don't have to exclusively stick to one line of promotions.
The Marvel Essential books reprint Marvel's classic comics for new fans who may have never read them, and old fans who may want to keep their collection untouched and just want to have something to re-read.

We want to make sure everyone gets more out of their FCBD experience this year, especially with so many good titles to choose from! So don't miss out on these deals! They're good up until May 7th, so you only have a few weeks more to reserve your FCBD comics!

 

 

Get a Taste of The DC Universe's REBIRTH This Week

With Previews and Checklists!

cover99_edited

DC Comics' REBIRTH relaunch begins in June with a slew of brand-new on-going series'! DC Comics has gone through and announced the new titles, story arcs, directions, and creative teams, but if you'd like a comprehensive idea of who's doing what, and what some of these titles will be about, DC Comics will be putting out an official FREE DC Universe: Rebirth preview book and checklist for fans who are anticipating the relaunch!

7466a8dc-c990-4c74-960a-3043f31e3363

This is going to be BIG. This is something ALL DC Comics fans should be paying attention to, new and old! While Rebirth isn't a reboot, allowing fans who have followed since the beginning of The New 52 to not feel intimidated with the thought of starting over again, old fans who may have left DC behind after The New 52 will be happy to hear that DC is bringing back a lot of the stuff you miss!
This is something you DO NOT want to miss!

And for anyone wondering if they're giving any hints as to what's to come in REBIRTH in any of DC Comics' current titles, John recommends keeping up with the current SUPERMAN cross-over event, SUPER-LEAGUE! DC Comics has been promising something major coming in DC Universe: Rebirth #1, specifically a death of a major character. In the first couple of pages of Super-League, it seems we get the revelation of who that may very well be!
This arc will also introduce a lot of the brand-new characters fans will come to read about when REBIRTH starts in June, such as the new Superboy, who will co-star with Robin in SUPER-SONS, and pave the way for titles such as the newly-launched SUPERGIRL series.

Super-League began in the pages of SUPERMAN #51, from last week, and will continue into BATMAN/SUPERMAN #31. Don't miss this major arc in the Superman comics that are sure to get fans talking not only about the arc, but what it may mean for the future of the DC Universe, going forward...

A New Six Issue Mini-Series!

Harley Quinn's the hottest character in DC Comics right now, with DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns calling her the "fourth pillar" of their company, next to the Trinity.

The Gang's homes, their loved ones-they're all in danger from a strange new villain with a very personal grudge against Harley!

MOON KNIGHT is Back! Or Has He Been Here At All?

Moon Knight fans are loud and clear! They want more Marc Spector and his crazy adventures! Well, his adventures are about to get a lot more insane now that he's been taken into a mental institution... Some would say it's been a long time coming! 

STL002291

Marc Spector (a.k.a. Moon Knight/Jake Lockley/Steven Grant) has been fighting criminals and keeping New York City safe for years...
Or has he?
When he wakes up in an insane asylum with no powers and a lifetime's worth of medical records, his whole identity (indentities) are called into question. Something is wrong, but is that something Marc Spector himself?
Jeff Lemire (EXTRAORDINARY X-MEN) and rising star Greg Smallwood are calling everything you know about Moon Knight into question.

Gwen Poole used to be a comic book reader just like you... Until she woke up in a world where the characters she read about seemed to be real! But they can't be, right?

She can if she tries!

This first issue comes with some great variant covers, as well, that you're not gonna want to miss out on!
