The Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) Committee has announced its Gold Sponsor comic book selections for the comic book industry’s top annual event, Free Comic Book Day, scheduled for Saturday, May 4th, 2013. Next year marks the twelfth anniversary of Free Comic Book Day with another great year of incredible titles that feature fan-favorite comic book characters and encourage new readers to explore the fun and excitement that comics can offer.
Chosen by retailers on the FCBD Committee, there’s a free comic book for everyone’s taste: from Superman, Star Wars, and The Walking Dead to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Sesame Street, Smurfs and a super-secret Marvel Comics title.
“Once again, comic book publishers have given fans what they want—great characters, great stories—all in a free comic book!” said FCBD spokesperson Leslie Bowser. “Retailers on the FCBD Committee had so many excellent titles to choose from that they expanded the Gold sponsor titles to twelve gold books for this year, instead of the usual ten. We’re sure fans will be pleased with the line-up and we look forward to hosting them again at local comic book shops across the nation and worldwide.”
A complete listing of all fifty-three FCBD titles, including the twelve Gold and forty-one Silver comic books, can be found in the January issue of Diamond Comic Distributors’ PREVIEWS catalog, on sale at all comic book shops on January 2, 2013. Look for a separate announcement next Thursday, December 13, on FCBD’s 2013 Silver Sponsors and their comic book titles.
