Exclusive Preview: <i>Bongo Comics Free-For-All</i> Brings <i>The Simpsons</i> to Free Comic Book Day 2017

Free Comic Book Day, or FCBD for short, is an annual delight for sequential-art fans—and one of the direct market’s most effective tools for driving traffic to physical shops and enticing new readers (especially younger readers) to try something new. This year’s event, slated for May 6th, promises a familiar array of free titles from publishers big and small, including Bongo Comics, the longtime print home for Matt Groening’s cartoon empire. In anticipation of the giveaway, Paste has an exclusive preview of Bongo’s The Simpsons FCBD issue, with the official solicitation text below.

Get in line for the foremost Free Comic Book Day four-color giveaway of the year! When Bart injures his back and has to use a rolling backpack, he turns weakness into strength as the “Leader of the Backpack Pack.” Then, Homer and Bart pull an all-nighter and put themselves on high alert to prevent a potential home invasion. Rod and Todd Flanders get separated from Ned Flanders in downtown Springfield and find themselves on an odyssey fraught with many mostly imagined dangers. All that and much, much more, and it’s all free!
