The Free Comic Book Day Committee has selected the twelve Gold Sponsor comic book titles for 2019’s Free Comic Book Day event, which is set to take place on May 4th 2019. The Gold Sponsor titles come from the industry’s top publishers, including DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, Image Comics, Archie Comics, BOOM! Studios, TOKYOPOP, Valiant Entertainment, Vault Comics, Titan Comics, and VIZ Media. Check out the cover artwork here (barring DC Comics’ Top Secret book, which is so super top secret it doesn’t even have a temporary placeholder).
“The quality of titles from publisher applicants made for some tough choices,” said Ashton Greenwood, Free Comic Book Day spokesperson. “It’s a solid indicator that Free Comic Book Day is truly the greatest event to showcase the best and brightest titles you can find in comic book shops. We can’t wait to once again share the FCBD experience with fans and everyone who loves comic books.”
The additional thirty-nine FCBD Silver Sponsor titles will be announced this coming Thursday.
