May 6, 2017

Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) is proud to announce the full list of comic book titles for the comic book industry’s most anticipated annual event, Free Comic Book Day. FCBD takes place every year on the first Saturday in May at participating comic book shops worldwide with next year’s event taking place on May 6th, 2017.

This year, Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) features a whole new selection of 38 Silver Sponsor comic book titles for the comic book industry’s most anticipated annual event taking place Saturday, May 6th, 2017 at participating comic book shops worldwide.

Retailers on the FCBD Selection Committee chose 50 titles overall–12 Gold Sponsor comics and 38 Silver Sponsor comics–to provide fans a wide range of stories from which to choose and discover new genres and publishers. This year’s Silver Sponsor comics include Fresh off the Boat, Buffy: The High School Years, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, SpongeBob, Barbie, and more.

“We’re thrilled to see the range of titles with this year’s Free Comic Book Day,” said Free Comic Book Day spokesperson Michael Moccio. “Free Comic Book Day is one of the most celebrated days in the industry. When so many people introduce family and friends to comics and their local comic shop for the first time, it’s important the titles reflect that varied interests of people coming to stores. We believe this is going to be one of the best Free Comic Book Days yet and we’re excited for everyone to experience it!”

A complete listing of all fifty FCBD titles, including the 12 Gold Sponsor comic books and 38 Sponsor comic books, can be found in the January issue of Diamond Comic Distributors’ PREVIEWS catalog, on sale at all comic book shops December 28th, 2016.

Geek madness rd 2

It’s March, and the madness has begun!  Are you a basketball fan who’s making the sad Jordan face because your bracket has been busted?  Well cry no more because Geek Madness 2017 has begun!

What’s Geek Madness?

Geek Madness is a bracket tournament much like that other one, but instead it’s made up of your favorite geek, nerd, sci-fi, video game, literary and general pop culture characters.  Every day we will post matchups in our Facebook group, or on our twitter account and we ask you the reader to decide the champion by simply voting for your favorite during each match up.

How Do I Decide the Winner?

The criteria for each winner is totally up to you.  It could be who would win in a fight?  Who has the cooler costume? Or even which one smells better.  You pick the criteria for your favorite.  If you like, let us know on social media why you picked each one, and we may use your picks on an episode of our podcast.
