Initially planned for Saturday, May 2nd, Free Comic Book Day transformed into Free Comic Book Summer this year. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the one-day event became a once-a-week, summer-long event. Now, as we approach fall, we’re down to its final week. Thankfully, FCBD saved the best for last. 

From Viz Media, previews of The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and Splatoon: Squid Kids Comedy Show manga have been combined into a free comic book


“The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess: Once upon a time, wizards tried to conquer the Sacred Realm of Hyrule. The Spirits of Light sealed the wizards’ power within the Shadow Crystal and banished them to the Twilight Realm beyond the Mirror of Twilight. Now, an evil menace is trying to find Midna, Princess of the Twilight Realm, and the fragments of the Shadow Crystal to gain the power to rule over both the Twilight Realm and the World of Light!


PLUS: Splatoon: Squid Kids Comedy Show, a new series based on the world of Splatoon, the hit video game series from Nintendo!”


The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess manga is currently at Volume 7 in the US at the time of this article being published. Judging by the artwork used, the FCBD 2020 version appears to show a portion of what happens in Volume 6. As for Splatoon: Squid Kids Comedy Show, only one volume has been localized and was released this summer.
