The Marvel Universe Was Split In Two For FCBD 2016 With The Release Of Captain America: Civil War!

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 2016 was just last year so readers are surely familiar with the release of Captain America: Civil War to go along with FCBD 2016! Fans were divided just like the Marvel Universe between picking between Team Captain America and Team Iron Man! Whose side were you on for Free Comic Book Day 2016?!

Here are the books and publishers that participated in the fifteenth 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 #FCBD2016 so everyone can take a look!
