The special issue will be available exclusively in print from participating comic book stores on Free Comic Day, May 5 2018.
“At 2000AD we’re thrilled to once again be involved in Free Comic Book Day 2018,” said editor Keith Richardson. “In the spirit of what this momentous day in the comics calendar represents, our droids have been working overtime to assemble a truly special comic, intended to deliver a healthy dose of craziness to the hands of Earthlets young and old!”
Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops.
