Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) 2018 features an amazing selection of comic book titles for the industry's most anticipated annual event which happens Saturday, May 5th, 2018 at participating comic book shops worldwide.

Retailers on the Selection Committee chose fifty titles overall to be available on Free Comic Book Day: twelve Gold Sponsor comics and thirty-eight Silver Sponsor comics that give fans a great opportunity to discover new titles and genres. This year's announcement of Silver Sponsor comics includes such great titles as Adventure Time, Berlin, Infinity Watch/Spider-Man, Nintendo’s Arms, Star Wars Adventures, and more.

"It’s a great time to be a comics fan, and an even greater time to experience the medium of comic books for the first time during our 17th annual Free Comic Book Day," said Joe Field, originator of FCBD, and owner of Flying Colors Comics in Concord, CA. "The amazing line-up of titles, the great events staged by thousands of independent comic book retailers, and the enthusiasm of comic shop fans all over the world will make May 5, 2018 a great day to celebrate comic books!"
