Marvel has announced their plans for next year’s Free Comic Book Day event, as the publisher will release four free comics on that day.
Just like they did this year, Marvel will use FCBD to promote several of their upcoming events, like Summer of Symbiotes and Fall of X. They’ll also have another Marvel’s Voices issue, and will round things out with a title aimed at the younger set — Spidey & His Amazing Friends, which will adapt the Disney Junior TV show.
Here are the details on the 2023 Spider-Man/Venom issue, which will include material by Zeb Wells, John Romita Jr., Al Ewing and Cafu:
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2023: SPIDER-MAN/VENOM will web-sling readers into a showdown with one of Spidey’s most dangerous rogues and set the stage for the future of Zeb Wells and John Romita Jr.’s hit run of AMAZING SPIDER-MAN while Al Ewing and Cafu lay the groundwork for the SUMMER OF SYMBIOTES. Plus, a preview of new Marvel epic just on the horizon.
The X-Men and Avengers are once again starring in an issue that also features a look at that mystery project by Jonathan Hickman and Valerio Schiti that Marvel has been teasing:
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2023: AVENGERS/X-MEN #1 features a pair of all-new stories that set the stage for the next evolution in mutant adventures, FALL OF X, and introduces an uncanny new lineup for a new team book launching next year. Plus, a preview of Jonathan Hickman and Valerio Schiti’s upcoming mystery project.
This is the second year Marvel has used FCBD to promote their Marvel’s Voices anthologies:
FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2023: MARVEL’S VOICES #1 invites readers to the groundbreaking and critically acclaimed MARVEL’S VOICES series, which spotlights creators and characters across Marvel’s diverse and ever-evolving universe. The book will include a range of stories from previous MARVEL’S VOICES issues, as well a brand-new one!
I’ve never actually seen the Disney Junior Spider-Man show, but doesn’t it look fun?
And last but certainly not least, FREE COMIC BOOK DAY 2023: SPIDEY & HIS AMAZING FRIENDS #1 is back!

Young fans will even be able to test their wall-crawling skills with thrilling interactive activity pages!
