This Saturday, on May 5th, local comic shops will be celebrating Free Comic Book Day, where many publishers will have free comics available for you to sample. Just keep in mind that the comics aren’t free for the retailers to acquire, so consider taking advantage of the many sales happening this weekend to pick up some swag for purchase from your retailer, too.
Oni Press is one of the publishers representing this weekend and they have the first issue of a new comic by Cullen Bunn, Brian Hurtt, A.C. Zamudio, and Carlos Zamudio hitting shops.
Shadow Roads is a series that focuses on a gateway between areas in the universe, and a group of Wild West adventurers are going to fight back against forces that are endangering the world. The series also has close thematic ties to The Sixth Gun series, as set in a universe that exists post-apocalypse to that story. This book is for teen audiences.
Here’s the official description:
At the Crossroads, a mythical plane that serves as a doorway throughout the universe, Gord Cantrell assembles a team of adventurers throughout the Wild West, brought together to fight back against the creatures that would endanger the sanctity of all creation. The spiritual successor to The Sixth Gun, set in the universe that exists after the apocalyptic events of The Sixth Gun series.
