The Force will be free on May the Fourth this year (that is, May 4, 2019) as it coincides with Free Comic Book Day.
To celebrate, Marvel is releasing a free sampler that will include previews of Galaxy’s Edge (based on the upcoming Disney theme park addition), Age of Rebellion – Boba Fett, and Tie Fighter. The Star Wars sampler will only be available at a participating comic book shop.
Free Comic Book Day began in 2002 and is the first Saturday of May. Many comics publishers offer free books and other incentives to comic book retailers to entice new readers to try comics.
