Celebrate Free Comic Book Day 2021 Slated on August 14
Diamond Comic Distributors has announced that Free Comic Book Day (FCBD), one of the comic book industry’s most beloved and anticipated celebrations, will once again be a single-day event, scheduled to take place Saturday, August 14, 2021. The event, which traditionally takes place on the first Saturday in May, will be celebrated in August 2021 in the hopes that much of the uncertainty and disruption related to COVID-19 will have passed.
This celebration marks the 20th anniversary of Free Comic Book Day and plans to commemorate this anniversary include themed t-shirts, posters, and a commemorative 20th-anniversary logo.
Free Comic Book Day 2021 will feature up to fifty free titles available at participating local comic shops. The titles will be comprised of up to twelve gold and thirty-five silver sponsor titles. Titles will be announced to the public in March and will appear in the April 2021 edition of the PREVIEWS catalog.
