Free Comic Book Day 2021 - 8/14/2021

Free Comic Book Day will celebrate it's 20th Anniversary on August 14, 2021. So far DC won't be participating as they aren't on Diamond's distribution any more.


Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) Retailer Selection Committee has selected fifty comic book titles for the industry's most anticipated annual event to take place on Saturday, August 14 at participating comic shops worldwide. The event, which traditionally takes place on the first Saturday in May, will return to a single-day celebration in August for the event’s milestone 20th anniversary.

A committee of comic shop retailers chose fifty titles to be available on Free Comic Book Day: twelve Gold Sponsor comics and thirty-eight 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 Avatar: The Last Airbender, Sonic The Hedgehog, Star Wars, Gloomhaven, The Smurfs, and more.

“Every year, we strive to bring fans a memorable Free Comic Book Day experience, and with this year being our 20th anniversary, we hope it will be the best 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 be able to safely visit their comic shops to celebrate!”

A complete listing of all fifty FCBD titles, including the twelve Gold Sponsor and thirty-eight Silver Sponsor comic books, can be found in the April issue of Diamond Comic Distributors' PREVIEWS catalog, on sale at comic book shops on March 24, 2021. They can also be viewed online at freecomicbookday.com.

Stray Dogs is a great comic, and that's one great cover! Can't wait to get it.

When is Free Comic Book Day this year? Are they going back to their usual way of releasing the books or will it be the same as last year?

FYI: Check with your LCS to see if they are doing FCBD on Saturday. Many have cancelled the event at their LCS due to the rise of COVID in many states.

There's a store that I hit every FCBD. They generally have everything. I usually line up about 2 hours before and by the time the store opens, there's a line that wraps around the building.

This year, I get there at 8am and set up camp. Five minutes later, a guy from the store pops his head out and asks "You here for Free Comic Book Day?" I said yes and he said "Come on in." Once inside, he hands me a stack of pre-sorted books in a bag. He said it's a copy of everything they got this year. They didn't get EVERYTHING but it's still plenty. Because of the Delta Variant, they didn't want a huge line or too many people hovering around the store. They didn't want FCBD to become a Covid party. I bought some stuff since he let me browse in the store and headed back home with my books.

I may hit another store later today once things wind down. Looking on FB, I see a few local stores are doing full events this year.

My shop had quite a few people there this morning, but they were actively enforcing masks.

Ours was the same. Two years ago they had tents and tables set up in the parking lot and on each tables was cases of each comic and you just walked through and picked up all the ones you wanted. They usually also had a $1 comic sale or $75 for a diamond case full of comics that you could fill from their tables of long boxes. This year you just waited in line and they handed you a bag with ten of the free comics in it; eight were the same in every bag and then two random free comics. Then if you wanted to go in the store, you had to take your bag to your car first.

My daughter and I looked around the store for a while, but not much appeared to be on sale so we left and went to the specialty donut shop around the other side of the building.

There was a line outside the one I went to, they were spacing people out so they didnít crowd the tables. Grabbed a few things, I had wanted some of the BladeRunner trades but they didnít have them so I bought some Magic cards.
