Free Comic Book Day will take place next month on 4th May 2024 and as usual, there will be some video game-themed ones up for grabs.

Provided you're located near a participating retailer, this year, you'll be able to get your hands on 'Pokémon Adventures: Omega Ruby & Alpha Sapphire’, ‘Street Fighter vs. Final Fight #1’ and Far Cry: Cull the Herd.

The Pokémon comic also includes a Splatoon 3 manga - with story and art by Sankichi Hinodeya. Here's a look at all three, along with the official descriptions (via VGC):
