Archaia Hardcover Anthology from Boom! Studios - You read that correctly. Archaia is once again breaking out a hardcover anthology for Free Comic Book Day. This anthology will contain stories from the Mouse Guard, Labyrinth, Rust, and others. I still read mine from a few years back with my kids and can't wait to pick this up.
Valiant Universe Handbook from Valiant Entertainment - Valiant has had quite a year. It is quickly becoming my favorite of the smaller publishers and the good folk there have recruited some amazing talent. This handy book will give you the run down of the 2014 Valiant Universe so you know which titles you should check out.
Hip Hop Family Tree Two-in-one from Fantagraphics - Ed Piskor has published five volumes in this series and they never disappoint. On Free Comic Book Day you can scoop this two-in-one and read two self-contained stories from the first two volumes in the series. Good stuff.
Rocket Raccoon from Marvel - Rocket Raccoon is an intriguing character that I will admit I know little about. I have been reading some Guardians of the Galaxy in preperation of the film, but would like to know more. This is a self-contained, new story that pits the fiesty hero in a battle against the cosmos.
