Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is an internationally-recognized event in which local participating comic book shops across the world distribute free comics to anyone who comes into their stores. It is held each year on the first Saturday of May, this year's being on May 3rd.

Avatar comics have been present among the several titles offered at FCBD for the past few years. This year's comic selection of 2014 will feature, yet again, another short Avatar comic book.

Gene Luen Yang, who contributed towards The Promise, The Search and the The Rift trilogies, will be returning to work on this year's exclusive story. I was able to contact him and he provided me with a few details on the comic. 

He told me that Faith Erin Hicks will be joining him in the production of the comic by completing the illustrations. Yang also introduced a a little bit about the storyline as well:

"It stars Suki and Sokka. We were able to incorporate some Kyoshi Warrior back story that Bryan and Mike described to us, that didn't make it into the original animated series," tells Yang to UltimateKorra.

Additionally, Dark Horse Comics (who are the publishers) even have a short description regarding the comic on their websiteSokka follows Suki as she gives a lesson in manners and encourages a young girl’s strength. The comic will be fairly short, only 10 pages long.

If you are interested in picking up a free copy, you can visit your local comic book shop. To locate your local comic store participating in Free Comic Book Day, check out this store-locator feature.
