Free Comic Book Day 2021

Silver Sponsor Comics, Adult Titles

Here are the titles which were once sold to “Mature Readers Only” IF your comics shop actually carried them, and then you usually had to ask them to pull out a box from behind the counter.

Now? Bookstores and libraries offer them to anyone! R-rated superheroes are @#$%&! popular, there’s a violent superhero cartoon on Amazon Prime, and, as seen below, you can even get them for free!

Your outrage may vary, you’ve been warned, and try not to laugh too hard.

The most eagerly-anticipated series of 2021 gets the FCBD treatment with this ALL-NEW “bonus” issue of the series! Featuring 33 pages of comics produced exclusively for FCBD, from the creator of Hip Hop Family Tree and X-Men: Grand Design, designed as a perfect entry point for new readers and a must-have for those already on board. Aided by the anonymous dark web and nearly untraceable crypto-currency, there has emerged a subculture of criminals who live-stream and patronize webcam murders for entertainment. Who are the murderers? Who are the victims? Who is the audience? How do we stop it? An outlaw, splatterpunk masterpiece, as seen on Piskor’s YouTube channel sensation, Cartoonist Kayfabe!

WHOA. This is Piskor taking so many aspects of current society, and weaving a disturbing yet fascinating work. Not for everyone, but there are probably a lot of readers who would … “enjoy” isn’t the right word … “appreciate” this work.

Strange, funny vignettes about a new adult who is probably the worst roommate and employee, so of course, hilarity ensues! (Hey, it worked for Friends and Seinfeld, right?)

Yes. Herogasm. Quite possibly the quintessential issue of The Boys. If you’re not familiar with this series, I highly recommend you read the Wikipedia article first.
CW, TW, NSFW, Rule 34.

Vampires as organized crime. The politics might make this an interesting read.
