Splatoon and Pokémon are set to make a splash in the lineup for ‘Free Comic Book Day’ 2024

Mark your calendars for next month, specifically May 4th, 2024, because it’s time for Free Comic Book Day! And guess what? This year, you can get your hands on some awesome video game-themed comics.

If you happen to be in close proximity to a participating retailer, you’ll have the opportunity to experience the latest releases, including ‘Pokémon Adventures: Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire’, ‘Street Fighter vs. Final Fight #1’, and Far Cry: Cull the Herd.

The Pokémon comic also features a Splatoon 3 manga, showcasing the captivating storytelling and artistic talent of Sankichi Hinodeya. Let’s take a closer look at all three options, accompanied by the official descriptions provided by VGC:
