Full Details For 44 Free Comic Book Day 2023 Titles

|

The Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) Committee has selected the thirteen Gold and thirty-one Silver comic book titles – though none of them from DC Comics – for the comic book industry’s most anticipated annual event, Free Comic Book Day, celebrated annually on the first Saturday in May at participating comic book shops worldwide, with next year’s event taking place on Saturday, May 6, 2023. DC Comics’ absence is because they are only distributed by Diamond in the UK, exclusive in the US with Lunar. While Marvel and IDW have left Diamond for PRH, with Dark Horse to follow, they allow Diamond to subdistribute from PRH. DC Comics will not. The participating titles were curated by 20+ comic shop retailers who make up the FCBD Selection Committee. And here they are in their full solicited details.
