Marvel Free Comic Book Day 2020 Issues Releasing In July
As many are fully aware, the coronavirus pandemic greatly shook the entertainment media industry this year, with companies being forced to cancel or postpone their newest releases and events. San Diego Comic-Con had to, unfortunately, cancel this year’s event in favor of a digital one, and all of the major movie studios had to delay their big summer blockbuster films. The comic book industry, while less restricted by the pandemic, still felt it best to cancel planned releases for the annual Free Comic Book Day event in May. Now, it looks like the Marvel Free Comic Book Day 2020 issues will be releasing in July.
The Hollywood Reporter has shared information from Marvel about the Marvel Free Comic Book Day 2020 issues. The X-Men and The Amazing Spider-Man/Venom issues that were initially planned to be released on May 2nd for Free Comic Book Day will now release in July as standalone issues. The X-Men issue, which will set up the upcoming X of Swords event, is set to be released on July 15th. In it, two stories will be contained. One story is written by Jonathan Hickman with art by Pepe Larraz, with the other being made by Tom Taylor and Iban Coello.
The Amazing Spider-Man/Venom issue will release on July 22nd and will consist of two stories. One will focus on Venom, crafted by a creative team consisting of Donny Cates and Ryan Stegman. The other story will feature a Black Cat story written by Jed Mackay and illustrated by Patrick Gleason. While the usual Marvel Free Comic Book Day fun could not be had in May per usual tradition, at least these stories get to live on and provide joy during the summer. Let us hope this makes Marvel fans feeling down give cause to rise and shout “Excelsior”!
