Feel Good Friday - Free Comic Book Day

National Free Comic Book Day hoping to get more kids into reading

"Even if you have never picked up a comic book, stop into a store because you never know what you will end up finding", Manzella said.

Striker Force 7 is a new story, created by Cristiano Ronaldo and superhero creator, Sharad Devarajan, and the comic book is based on the animated series now in production.

Beyond the Free Comic Book Day special, Cristiano and Devarajan have also closed an 8-territory European publishing deal to launch a series of three original graphic novels based on their characters, with the first book launching later this year.
