The Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) Retailer Selection Committee has selected forty-six comic book titles for the industry’s most anticipated annual event to take place on Saturday, May 7, at participating comic shops worldwide. In 2022, FCBD will return to its traditional “First Saturday in May” event date.

A committee of comic shop retailers chose forty-six titles to be available on Free Comic Book Day: eleven Gold Sponsor comics and thirty-five Silver Sponsor comics that give fans a great opportunity to discover new titles and genres. This year’s selection of Silver Sponsor comics includes beloved franchises such as The Walking DeadAvatar: The Last Airbender, Sonic The Hedgehog, Pokémon, Avengers, and Street Fighter. Other notable Silver Sponsor titles are available from Dynamite Entertainment, BOOM! Studios, ABLAZE, Titan Comics, AfterShock Comics and more.

“Every year, we strive to bring fans a memorable Free Comic Book Day experience. We’re looking forward to returning to the traditional first Saturday in May event date and hope fans will visit local shops to celebrate what we hope will be one of the best FCBD events yet!” said Ashton Greenwood, Free Comic Book Day spokesperson. “The variety of this year’s comic book selection is really exciting! There’s something for every kind of fan, from the long-time reader to the comic book curious. We know comic book retailers are looking forward to treating everyone to a day of fun and discovery, so we hope fans will safely visit their comic shops to celebrate!”

The complete listing of all forty-six FCBD titles, including the eleven Gold Sponsor and thirty-six Silver Sponsor comic books, can be found in the January issue of Diamond Comic Distributors’ PREVIEWS catalog, on sale at comic book shops on Wednesday, December 29. They can also be viewed online at freecomicbookday.com.
