2 Free Manga Exclusives for Free Comic Book Day 2016 from VIZ Media

VIZ Media is participating in this year’s Free Comic Book Day as a Gold Level Sponsor by offering two FREE exclusive manga sampler releases (available while supplies last).


Scheduled for Saturday, May 7th at thousands of locations across America, Free Comic Book Day is an annual promotional campaign developed by the North American comic book industry to help bring new readers of all ages and vaired interests into independent comic book stores. Free Comic Book Day began in 2002 and is coordinated by the industry’s single largest distributor, Diamond Comic Distributors.

VIZ Media announced its continued support and sponsorship for FREE COMIC BOOK DAY with a pair of special FREE manga samplers that will include excerpts from VIZ Media’s newest POKÉMON POCKET COMICS: LEGENDARY POKÉMON release as well as a Shonen Jump sampler containing action-packed excerpts from ONE-PUNCH MAN and MY HERO ACADEMIA.


A sample of the newest addition to VIZ Media’s expansive POKÉMON library, offers fun quizzes and Pokémon statistics accompanied by four-panel gag comic strips. Join our Pokémon pals on a quest through the Unova region for the Legendary Joke—while testing your Pokémon knowledge and laughing all the way! The full volume is priced at $9.99 US / $12.99 CAN




Check out the superhero action of two smash hit titles from VIZ Media’s Shonen Jump imprint—ONE-PUNCH MAN and MY HERO ACADEMIA.

Action fans can sample an excerpt from the smash hit series about an unlikely superhero in ONE-PUNCH MAN. Nothing about Saitama passes the eyeball test when it comes to superheroes, from his lifeless expression to his bald head to his unimpressive physique. However, this average-looking guy has a not-so-average problem—he just can’t seem to find an opponent strong enough to take on! Volume 6 of the series will be released on May 3rd! Priced at $9.99 US / $12.99 CAN

In MY HERO ACADEMIA, imagine what the world would be like if 80 percent of the population manifested superpowers called “Quirks”? Heroes and villains would be battling it out everywhere! Being a hero would mean learning to use your power, but where would you go to study? The Hero Academy, of course! But what would you do if you were one of the 20 percent who were born Quirkless? Catch the debut of Volume 4 on May 3rd for $9.99 US / $12.99 CAN
