For FCBD 2014 Variety Was The Name Of The Game With 60 Different Titles!

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!

There was a total of 60 comics offered for Free Comic Book Day 2014. That meant there was no lack of diversity! There was a free comic book for everyone’s taste from Sonic the Hedgehog and Teen Titans Go!, to Scratch 9, Rocket Raccoon, The Smurfs, Grimm Fairy Tales and more! Of course there was also a corresponding superhero movie released, and this year it was the web-slinging wonder in The Amazing Spider-Man 2!

Here are the books and publishers that participated in the thirteenth 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 #FCBD2014 so everyone can take a look!
