2019 is coming and so is Free Comic Bok Day! Next year it will fall on May 4, 2019, just in time for everyone to be talking about Avengers Endgame – and what better time to pick up a print comic book?
The FCBD committee has selected the 12 Gold Sponsor books, which represent the industry’s top publishers and titles. Marvel’s will feature the Avengers, der, but as is often tradition, DC’s will be a top-secret title yet to be announced. Joining the Gold level this year, spunky Vault Comics.
Virtually all the titles have some media tie-in, from Boom’s Whedonverse preview to Dark Horse’s Stranger Things to Image’s Deadly Class.
“The quality of titles from publisher applicants made for some tough choices,” said Ashton Greenwood, Free Comic Book Day spokesperson. “It’s a solid indicator that Free Comic Book Day is truly the greatest event to showcase the best and brightest titles you can find in comic book shops. We can’t wait to once again share the FCBD experience with fans and everyone who loves comic books.”
The full line-up Silver Sponsor titles are still coming. There will be 51 titles in this year’s FCBD offerings.
