DC Entertainment will be celebrating with two amazing books for the biggest fans, young and old – DC Super Hero Girls and DC Nation #0.
For anyone who wants to encourage reading, particularly among children, Free Comic Book Day is such an excellent way to do it. Especially with the inspiring and motivating lessons in DCSHG, comic books are a perfect way to get kids to focus on literacy while enjoying some of their favorite hero characters. You can read more about DC Super Hero Girls here.
The FCBD offering this year is a chapter from DC Super Hero Girls Date with Disaster. Date with Disaster continues the excitement and success of the NY Times Bestselling DC Super Hero Girls, written by Shea Fontana. It stars Batgirl, Lois Lane and Catwoman as they navigate the complexities of life and investigate the clues of a mystery explosion.
On May 2, DC Nation #0 will be released. It is a full-size comic that will feature previews of three of DC’s highest-profile story arcs of 2018 – the wedding of Batman and Catwoman, Brian Michael Bendis’ weekly MAN OF STEEL series and JUSTICE LEAGUE: NO JUSTICE, by Scott Synder, James Tynion IV and Joshua Williamson. The book will also be available for digital download.
