FCBD takes place every year on the first Saturday in May at participating comic book shops worldwide with next year’s event taking place on May 2nd, 2015.
The comics were carefully chosen by comic shop retailers on the FCBD Selection Committee and feature something for everyone from superheroes, to action-adventure, and all-ages favorites. The Gold Sponsor publishers include Archie Comics, Bongo Comics, BOOM! Studios, DC Comics, Dark Horse Comics, Dynamite Entertainment, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, Marvel Comics, Titan Comics, United Plankton Publications and Viz Media.
“We are extremely excited about the quality and diversity of the Gold level comic books that comic shops will be giving away for this year’s event on May 2nd,” said FCBD spokesperson, Deborah Moreland. “The Gold Sponsors are comprised of top publishers in the comics industry and we are confident that fans will be pleased with this year’s line-up of comics. Whether you’ve been a fan for years or you’re just getting into comics because you love the movies, TV shows and video games based on comics, then Free Comic Book Day and your local comic shop have the perfect comic for you!”
