Readers are invited along for the fantastic sci-fi/adventure exploits of 11-year-old Jonny Quest, as he travels to exotic locales around the world with his trusted companions. These include his scientist father Dr. Benton Quest, his adoptive brother Hadji, his bodyguard Race Bannon, and his faithful dog Bandit. Join the Quest team in tackling new government assignments, solving mysteries, and apprehending sophisticated villains for the betterment of mankind.

The Free Comic Book Day release features a fun-filled 10-page story that will whet readers’ appetites for the full ongoing series coming shortly as the summer nears. Eisner Award-nominated scribe Joe Casey leads the team of adventurers behind the pages, known for fan-favorite tenures on big titles like Cable, WildC.A.T.s, and Adventures of Superman. Creations like Gødland, Jesusfreak, and All-America Comix have also drawn critical acclaim. He’s joined in the journey by artist Sebastián Piriz, colorist Lorenzo Scaramella, and letterer Taylor Esposito. This early treat available to all fans at no cost at all is topped off with a gorgeous cover by Chris Samnee!

“Fun adventure is what it’s all about,” said Casey. “Getting the characters’ voices right has been a real kick.”

The Jonny Quest Free Comic Book Day release will also include previews of ThunderCats and Space Ghost. ThunderCats already has a few issues out while Space Ghost #1 launches on May 1.

This year Free Comic Book Day will be celebrated at all participating comic book stores on May 4, always the first Saturday in May.
