The North American manga publisher Viz Media will be one of the companies celebrating Free Comic Book Day on Saturday by offering a free sampler of its Shonen Jump magazine. The 32-page issue features a chapter of Ultimo, the manga created by Stan Lee (Spider-Man, X-Men, Fantastic Four) and Hiroyuki Takei (Shaman King). A short preview of the free issue is available online. The sampler also contains short previews of every other title in Shonen Jump, an Ultimo pinup, and an interview with Lee and Takei.
The official website for the Free Comic Book Day event offers a locator for finding the nearest participating comic shop.
