New titles from Image, Oni, BOOM! and more will debut on May 6 next year.
Diamond has revealed the rest of the 2023 Free Comic Book Day line-up, which puts an additional 31 titles into the mix. Add’em to the “gold sponsor” titles announced earlier this week for a total of 44 free comics that will be available to retailers and fans on May 6.
Some of the highlights of the “silver sponsor” titles include:
- The Sacrificers, a new Image Comics title by Rick Remender and Max Fiumara.

- Ten Speed Press has a preview of I Am Stan, the new Stan Lee biography by Tom Scioli.
- BOOM! Studios will preview Mech Cadets by Greg Pak and Takeshi Miyazawa,
which sounds like a sequel to the wonderful Mech Cadet Yu. Update: Actually they are reprinting the first issue of the miniseries rather than releasing something new. BOO! I want a new series!
- There’s also Animal Crossing, Nightmare Before Christmas, the Freak Brothers, the Smurfs and many more familiar names.
