FCBD 2010 Flying In With Iron Man 2!

Everyone loves Free Comic Book Day! Who wouldn't? Awesome comics available free of charge provided by the best publishers in the business and the most incredible comic stores across the world make Free Comic Book Day a holiday like none other. This year, Free Comic Book Day celebrates its sixteenth year introducing millions of people to the wonders of comics!

It all started in 2002, where retailer Joe Field, owner of Flying Colors Comics & Other Cool Stuff, saw the success of other days like Free Cone Day and posed the question to other retailers and publishers: shouldn't we do this too? By having a day where publishers offered up their best and most accessible titles to retailers at a low price, comic stores could give away comics for free to the public and encourage those who loved superhero films and multimedia to pick up the comics! Sixteen years later, Free Comic Book Day has become one of the most beloved events in the entire industry!

Free Comic Book Day 2010 shared the premier week with the movie Iron Man 2! There was also another figure included in the list of items you could pick up! It was a Marvel Heroclix: War Machine Figure! The movie and figure went along with the Free Comic Book Day comic, Iron Man and Thor!

Here are the books and publishers that participated in the ninth Free Comic Book Day! Which one would you have picked up? Let us know on Facebook and Twitter--if you have any of these comics around, post them to social media with #FCBD2010 so everyone can take a look!
