You can get a glimpse of the brand new Roy of the Rovers this weekend as part of Free Comic Book Day.
Roy makes a small cameo in 2000 AD Regened, a riotous new comic featuring original, full-colour strips from the makers of 2000 AD, created specially for Free Comic Book Day.
2000 AD is also under the Rebellion banner alongside Roy of the Rovers, and although Roy and the Galaxy's Greatest Comic haven't crossed paths much in the past, that's all about to change!
Free Comic Book Day is the biggest date in the comic book calendar, and this special issue of 2000 AD will be available exclusively in print from participating comic book stores on 5 May 2018.
“At 2000 AD we’re thrilled to once again be involved in Free Comic Book Day 2018,” said editor Keith Richardson, who is also editing the forthcoming Roy of the Rovers reboot. “In the spirit this momentous day in the comics calendar, our droids have been working overtime to assemble a truly special comic, intended to deliver a healthy dose of craziness to the hands of Earthlets young and old - and we couldn't leave Roy of the Rovers out!”
Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their shops.
