Browncoats are in for a treat this weekend! A special Serenity / Star Wars comic from Dark Horse Comics” will be given away free on Free Comic Book Day!Free Comic Book Day is a 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 to promote the joy of reading comics.

The special issue features 2 stories – a Serenity tale, and a separate Star Wars tale (though a cross over would have been interesting!).

“Mal” Reynolds, captain of the outlaw vessel Serenity, is no stranger to jobs gone wrong. But when the chips are down, he’s able to rely on an amazing, odd, and diversely talented crew for help!

Han Solo and Chewbacca have a falling-out after a deal with a shady customer goes bad. When the client gets designs on the Millennium Falcon, Han and Chewie present a united front that can’t be beat!

Two great space epics in one issue!

So get on down to your local participating comic store this Saturday and pick up a copy! Participating Melbourne stores include All Star Comics (who will have creator signings, costume contest and more to celebrate the day), Gifts For The Geek and Classic Comics.
