The stories (according to the official synopsis in the FCBD listing) are suitable for all ages and will return fans to the world-famous Scoops Ahoy in the Stranger Things section, when the employess learn that “…Erica Sinclair smuggled out a dangerous object from the Russian facility below Starcourt Mall and they must once more come together to find a safe solution before government authorities discover the threat they pose!”
Over in the world of Minecraft, “…a young middle-schooler discovers puberty is stranger than she imagined” and begins to explore her newly found Minecraft powers in a real world setting.
The Free Comic Book Summer event is taking the place of the traditional Free Comic Book Day due to the world-wide pandemic. New comics will be available every week through September 9 and you can check out the official website for all of the release details. Remember to be safe and please call ahead so you can be aware of how your local shop is distributing the free copies.
