featuredimage13

We've got 15 days left (From when this goes up on Friday, April 22nd) to count down until the 15th annual FREE COMIC BOOK DAY event, here at Soundwave!

We're incredibly excited to see all of our friends here, that day, and their friends, as well, and for all of the sales and deals we've got planned that you're not gonna want to miss, as they'll be ONE DAY ONLY!

But, until we get to the event on May 7th, we've got a few things in store for everyone to get more out of their FCBD experience!
Starting tomorrow, on Saturday, April 23rd, we will start our very own "14 Days of Free Comic Book Day" two week event! We will post up an article detailing the next two weeks of daily, unique sales and deals that friends and customers will be able to get in on, leading to FCBD'16.

As the weeks go on, and the deals keep coming, we can definitely guarantee that each one will continue to sweeten the pot!

They WILL NOT be available on the day of Free Comic Book Day.

Like our last two promotions, which are, also, still good up until May 7th, the more you buy, the more FREE comics you get on Free Comic Book Day!
There's a total of 50 free comics to receive on FCBD, and we want everyone to get more than just the three free per person that we usually do every year.

Keep an eye out, here, on SoundwaveComics.com, and on our official FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2016 Facebook event page for all the updates you need on these deals, and on the event itself!
And let us know you're coming while on the event page!

For details on our last two promotions:
Click HERE to see our MARVEL: SEASON ONE original graphic novel promotion. Each Season One is $24.99, and if you buy one you get twelve, out of the 50, FCBD comics on the day of the event. If you buy more than one, you'll receive twelve more FCBD'16 comics per Season One you buy.
Click HERE to see our MARVEL ESSENTIALS promotion. Each one is between different price ranges of $16.99 to $26.99. If you buy one, same deal as the Season One OGN's, you'll receive twelve FCBD comics. If you buy more than one, we'll give you twelve more FCBD comics per Essential.
And you can expect the "14 Days of Free Comic Book Day" deals to do the same! You can even mix and match deals, as well! The more you buy, the more FCBD comics you'll get!

REMEMBER, these sales and deals are only good UP TO May 7th.

They will not be available on the day of FCBD. So, get in on them

Wonder Woman Gets Caught Up In SUPER-LEAGUE!

Are you reading SUPER-LEAGUE!? No? Well, you should!

This story arc is proving to be the most important final arc of the original New 52 titles before DC switches gears into REBIRTH. Something's happened to Superman and it's up to him to find people with his similar power set to make sure the world is safe in case something happens to him... We don't want to give up too much, but this is going to have a major impact on the Superman mythos going forward! And, old school Superman fans will be quite happy with the new direction DC will be taking with Superman going forward...

This week, DC Comics releases the fourth part to this arc within the pages of SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN #28!

STL001470

In part four of "Super League," Wonder Woman and Superman encounter the being that was discovered in BATMAN/SUPERMAN #31. But will this person be Superman's savior-or destroyer? And what is Ulysses's role in all of this?

Don't miss out on this arc!

DC has sold out of the first three parts, and so have we, and will be releasing second prints. We'll be getting those to help whoever missed them catch back up. It'll be interesting to see how this all turns out, in the end.
