Free Comic Book Day Gold Titles Announced for 2016
Diamond Comics Distributors and the Free Comic Book Day Committee have announced the twelve Gold Sponsor comic book titles for next year's Free Comic Book Day. FCBD is held on the first Saturday in May at participating comic book shops, and the next one happens on May 7th, 2016.
The Gold Titles represent the industry's top publishers, and feature a variety of styles and stories for all kinds of comics readers.
DC Comics has a book on the Gold list, but we don't have a title or cover; it's currently billed as DC Comics Gold Book. Personally, I'm hoping that it tells the story of Booster Gold teaming up with Gold of the Metal Men to thwart the evil plans of Goldface and Golden Glider.
Here are the rest of the Gold Titles:
VALIANT ENTERTAINMENT - Valiant 4001 A.D. Special FCBD 2016 Edition

TITAN COMICS - Doctor Who: Four Doctors Special FCBD 2016 Edition
