There is also a free comic of SPECTRUM… a comic based on the fictitious sci-fi TV show from the web series CON-MAN – which is written by and stars Alan Tudyk & Nathan Fillion, based on their experiences since FIREFLY & SERENITY.

Need a reason to pick up Dark Horse Comics’ 2016 Free Comic Book Day offering? Here’s three: From Mike Mignola and Richard Corben, a lesson from Hellboy’s past is shared.
From Brian Wood, a peek into the Aliens: Defiance series with an original tale with art from Australia’s TRISTAN JONES.
And from the world of Joss Whedon, a glimpse at the crew of the Serenity, following the film and the smash-hit series Leaves on the Wind!
SPECTRUM #0 FCBD 2016 edition
Firefly stars Alan Tudyk and Nathan Fillion present the first Spectrum comic from their highly successful webseries, Con Man! Our planet has been ravaged by two alien attacks and life on Earth is very different. Captain James Raaker is tasked with cleaning it up, but this is just a set-up to destroy everything he loves and quite possibly life on Earth itself!
The four-issue series from Automatic Publishing will be written by Tudyk and novelist/producer PJ Haarsma (The Softwire Series) with artwork by Sarah Stone (Transformers) and overseen by Shel Dorf Award-winning editor Shannon Eric Denton. The Free Comic Book Day offering is not a sampler or a preview, but the actual first issue of the series.
Both of these titles will be available on Free Comic Book Day, Saturday 7th of May, 2016. But quantities are limited, and it’s first in first served, so cancel everything else!
