Valiant has announced not one, but two titles for Free Comic Book Day 2013.
The first is the Harbinger Wars FCBD Special, which looks to be a showcase on the Harbinger Wars storyline that will have just started up at that point.
The second FCBD book is a preview book of the Valiant Comics Modern Masters line, which is the hardcover reprints of classic Valiant stories.
It sounds like the FCBD issue will be similar to the 2012 FCBD issue, with some previews of the books that are coming out, and some teases of what is to come.
It also looks, from the cover of the Modern Masters FCBD issue, that we can expect an Eternal Warrior Modern Masters hardcover. Hopefully, it will probably have Eternal Warrior issues 6 and 7, with the Eternal Warrior going up against Master Darque, one of the better stories from the classic Valiant.
It’s great that Valiant will be releasing two books for FCBD. It will be double the fun!
Only five months till Free Comic Book Day!
