The slate of “Gold Sponsor” books for Free Comic Book Day 2016 is set to be announced later today, but right now CBR has the exclusive first look at covers and solicitation text for Dynamite Entertainment‘s FCBD offerings.
The Gold release will be a “Bob’s Burgers” comic, based on the hit Fox animated comedy that Dynamite has held the comic book rights to since 2013. The FCBD comic is said to feature “three wild and zany adventures featuring those lovable scamps Tina, Gene, and Louise,” from various as-yet unnamed writers and artists, and with a cover by Sara Richard. “Bob’s Burgers” was also the subject of Dynamite’s 2015 Free Comic Book Day offering.
“Grumpy Cat,” the real-life feline that’s become an Internet sensation (and the inspiration for a Dynamite comic book series), stars in Dynamite’s Silver release. The comic is billed as bringing Grumpy Cat’s “hilarious brand of sass to comic shops everywhere,” with talent including writer Ben McCool and artist Steve Uy.
Full solicitation text for Dynamite’s Free Comic Book Day releases follow. Free Comic Book Day 2016 takes place May 7, 2016, with these comics and more available for free at participating comic book stores, as supplies last.
