The early bird catches the worm…or comic.
This weekend is the return of Free Comic Book Day, and Archie has a sample of their own to offer. Available via the FCBD website, Previews World has a preview for the Sonic Sampler that you’ll be able to pick up without paying a single penny!
The comic features parts of two already-released stories, “Keys to Victory” from Sonic the Hedgehog #280 and “Eggman’s Dozen”; part 1 from Sonic Universe #83. More extensive previews of them can be found on in previous previews on this site if you’re curious and don’t own the full issues already. What’s possibly more interesting for regular readers is the featurette, a sneak peak at events to come in the “Fast Forward Feature” segment! Could we be seeing a look at the end of the Shattered World Crisis? We’ll all find out on the day.

The Sonic Sampler will be one of many comics available at all participating comic book stores. The day it’s happening is Saturday May 7th. Stores often become busy on Free Comic Book Day, so I recommend heading out early to beat the crowds and ensure you get a copy. Who know, maybe you’ll pick up other samples and find a new series to get into!
