Avatar Press is pleased to announce that its participation in Free Comic Book Day 2003 will include work from Frank Miller, Alan Moore, Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, Steven Grant, Antony Johnston, Jacen Burrows, Juan Jose Ryp, Mike Wolfer, and more. Frank Miller's Robocop / Stargate SG1 will be a 32 page full color comic at the FCBD gold sponsorship level, and the Avatar Graphic Novel Sampler will be a 32 page black & white comic at the FCBD silver sponsorship level. Both comics will be available free from retailers participating in Free Comic Book Day 2003.

Free Comic Book Day is a single day when participating comic book shops across North America and around the world are giving away comic books absolutely free to anyone who comes into their stores. Now entering its second year after a very successful debut in 2002, the event takes place on May 3 in 2003.

"Free Comic Book Day has quickly become one of the premiere events for our industry's retailers, creators, and publishers to work toward bringing new audiences to comics," says Avatar Press editor in chief William Christensen. "I'm proud to be contributing to that effort by helping to put work from the very best creators in comics in the hands of a new readership. Frank Miller, Alan Moore, Warren Ellis, Garth Ennis, and Steven Grant are acknowledged masters of the medium. Jacen Burrows, Antony Johnston, Juan Jose Ryp, Mike Wolfer and the other creators involved in this event at Avatar are some of our industry's rising stars. With material from creators like these, Avatar hopes to work with Diamond and the retail community to build new audiences by showing them the best of what comic books have to offer."
