‘Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,’ ‘Avatar: The Last Airbender’ And ‘Hello Kitty’ Among Free Comic Book Day 2014 Offerings

FCBD 2014 Gold Books

From the looks of what Diamond Comic Distributors has release so far, Free Comic Book Day 2014 on May 3, will once again be a most family-friendly affair.

Diamond unveiled what it’s calling its “gold-level title” list today, 12 books from publishers including DC Comics, Marvel, Image, Archie, Dark Horse, Viz Media, Bongo Comics, Boom! Studios and Fantagraphics. The fare is almost all kid-friendly stuff, with Hello Kitty, Avatar: The Last Airbender, Spongebob Squarepants, Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, and Uncle Scrooge comics all on tap.

The comics geared at older readers seem to be the ones from the top three publishers. DC will offer up a first look at its new weekly series, The New 52: Futures End. Marvel’s offering will be a Guardians of the Galaxy book. Image is giving fans a #0 issue of Marc Silvestri’s new, mysical comic, Rise of the Magi.
