Free Comic Book Day 2020

https://www.freecomicbookday.com

As the impact and spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve, Diamond Comic Distributors is aware that Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) will be impacted to varying degrees throughout the world. With that in mind, Diamond Comic Distributors has made the difficult decision to postpone the event to a date later in the Summer.“The severity and timing of the impact of the COVID-19 virus can’t be predicted with any certainty, but the safety of our retailer partners and comic book fans is too important to risk. As always, we appreciate your enthusiasm for and support of the comic industry’s best event and look forward to celebrating with you later in the Summer,” said Diamond Founder and CEO, Steve Geppi.

Free Comic Book Day 2020 offers a selection of 47 titles available absolutely free at participating local comic shops across the United States and around the world. The 47 titles represent a broad range of taste, from superheroes, to sci-fi, to action-adventure, slice-of-life, manga, and so much more! The Free Comic Book Day selection is designed to appeal to every type of reader out there.

Diamond will announce additional information soon regarding FCBD non-comic merchandise. As further updates become available, we will continue to share via this website, as well as the Free Comic Book Day social media channels: Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

Rumor is that FCBD will move this year to Halloween Comicfest.

Seems nice for the shops who can use the issues as bait however they please. It sounds like a lot of work to me as a customer, though.

https://www.freecomicbookday.com/Art...gh-September-9

Scheduled to take place between July 15 and September 9, comic shops will receive five to six Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) titles in their weekly shipments during each week of the promotional window. Release of these titles may vary from shop to shop, as retailers are encouraged to release the books as they see fit for their unique circumstances. Retailers may release one free title a day, may make all of that week’s free titles available at once, or any other plan that works for them. Free Comic Book Summer is designed to be flexible and customizable so retailers and fans can get the most out the event.

I feel this is a good plan to bring bodies back to the LCS specially with how things are going right now. I don't mind this at all and hope that it actually helps LCS survive the pandemic.

On a side note, it appears that the DC FCBD book has been cancelled. That book was supposed to be the introduction of the 5G storyline, which was killed once Didio was fired from DC. The problem now is that Wally West is in limbo... once again.
