Marvel has announced plans for a free Star Wars sampler to be distributed by participating comic stores on the franchise's annual May the 4th event (as in "May the 4th/Force Be With you").

Marvel's sampler will include previews of Galaxy's Edge, Age of Rebellion - Boba Fett, Tie Fighter, and more, along with new interviews by creators such as Greg Pak and Kieron Gillen.

Retailers will be given free 25-pack bundles of the sampler based on their ordering history with Diamond Comic Distributors, and may purchase additional bundles for $5 each (that means each copy is 20 cents wholesale).

March 25 is the deadline for retailers to place their orders.

Star Wars' May the 4th coincidentally takes place on Free Comic Book Day this year.
