If you have never experienced a ‘Free Comic Book Day’ (FCBD) then you are missing out. It is a joyous day in which you swing over to your local comic shop and grab a stack of free comics.

The complete list of titles being released on Saturday, May 5, 2018, was unveiled today as the Selection Committee chose a short box of comics deemed worthy for retailers to carry. In all, 50 titles were selected, including 12 ‘Gold Sponsors’ comics.

DC is the lone wolf in keeping its title under wraps, promising ‘a special and top-secret project too big to announce!’, while Marvel is planning to release two titles per sponsors in ‘Avengers and Captain America’ (Gold) and ‘Infinity Watch and Amazing Spider-Man’ (Silver).
