Free Comic Book Day? More like Free Comic Book Summer!

Free Comic Book Day looks a little different this year. Rather than being distributed all on a single day, the free comics will be released a few at a time, with several new titles added each week. 

Retailers can choose whether to make the new titles available all at once or come up with their own distribution plan.
