Marvel Previews Tomorrow's Free Comic Book Day Issues

Ahead of tomorrow's Free Comic Book Day, Marvel Comics has released a preview of the three free comics it's releasing in comic book stores. Do any of them contain enough smut to fuel a conservative media frenzy? That remains to be seen. For now, check out the previews of Avengers/X-Men #1, Spider-Man/Venom #1, and Spidey and His Amazing Friends.

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: AVENGERS/X-MEN #1

Cover by VALERIO SCHITI
Variant Cover by PEACH MOMOKO
Available for free 5/7

In FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: AVENGERS/X-MEN #1, writer Kieron Gillen and artist Dustin Weaver set the stage for JUDGMENT DAY, a summer event series by Gillen and artist Valerio Schiti. The epic event will put the Avengers, the X-Men and the Eternals on a collision course as a war brews between two of the three powerhouse factions. These two pages from Gillen and Weaver show the ancient origin of the conflict between the X-Men and the Eternals, as well as the Avengers' longstanding role in it.

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: AVENGERS/X-MEN #1 also contains "Let's Talk About Krakoa," a short story from writer Gerry Duggan and artist Matteo Lolli that will lead right into this year's HELLFIRE GALA. Across this preview's two pages, X-Men villain Moira MacTaggert explains how Krakoa came to be, her role in it, and her sinister intentions for it – just before she promises to stoke the flames of war between the mutants and mankind.

FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: SPIDER-MAN/VENOM #1
Written by ZEB WELLS, AL EWING, & RAM V

Meanwhile, in FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: SPIDER-MAN/VENOM #1, our friendly neighborhood Spider-Man faces down a sillier, but no less terrifying opponent: a killer mailbox. In two pages from writer Zeb Wells and artist John Romita Jr.'s "Lost in the Mail," Peter Parker rescues an older gentleman from the jaws of certain death – while scolding it with his signature Spidey humor.

Ram V, Al Ewing and Stefano Raffaele will also bring their Venom short "Seven Seals" to FREE COMIC BOOK DAY: SPIDER-MAN/VENOM #1. This two-page preview invites a naked, bleeding Eddie Brock to embrace black magic as the Magician, while his son Dylan confesses to his friend Normie that he believes his father is not only alive, but fighting to get back.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
