Free Comic Book Day cover images released

[Free Comic Book Day]Diamond Comics has provided CBR with a look at the cover images for comics that will be given away by DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Image Comics and Dark Horse Comics on Free Comic Book Day scheduled for Saturday, May 4th.

Announced back in December, Free Comic Book Day is supported by Diamond Comic Distributors with participation by a growing number of comics companies in an effort to bring new readers into comic shops. Free Comic Book Day also hopes to cash-in on the hype the upcoming "Spider-Man" film has by holding the event the day after the movie's release.

The following covers from each of the four major publishers are virtually unchanged from their original release except for the Free Comic Book Day branding. The Image offering, Tomb Raider 1/2, sports the same cover used in the Top Cow release, which is different than the cover used by Wizard in the 1/2 edition. The Dark Horse cover below is not the final version of the cover. Dark Horse will reveal its photo cover soon.
