Comics, Events

90089_241599_7The full roster of titles available at Free Comic Book Day 2010 have been announced, bringing an impressive array of kids’ comics, super hero fare, classic reprints and the latest series to the annual event. The newly announced “silver titles” include Sonic: The Hedgehog, Bongo Free-For-All featuring the Simpsons, Green Hornet #1, The Tick #1, Iron Man: Supernova, The Overstreet Guide and Owly and Friends, among many others.

Titles from “gold sponsors,” announced earlier this month, were selected for their potential to draw new readers into comic book shops with some of the industry’s most recognized characters, such as Superman, Shrek, Archie, Buzz Lightyear and G.I. Joe.

In addition to the comics, legendary artist and creator Sergio Aragones has been selected to illustrate the first-ever Free Comic Book Day commemorative artist T-shirt.

There will also be available at the event an eco-friendly shopping bag featuring the FCBD logo, with reinforced handles and bottoms.

Updated with KeL’s picks from the comments:

My suggestions from the lot:

G.I. Joe: Larry Hama returning to the book he wrote for over a decade at Marvel? Sign me up! I literally grew up reading Hama’s run on G.I. Joe. It’s one of the titles that turned me into the full-fledged comic nerd I am today.

Atomic Robo: The story of a very human automaton and his team of monster-bashing scientists is equal parts Hellboy and Indiana Jones.

The Tick: One of the funniest and most off-the-wall takes on the superhero genre around.

Iron Man/Thor: These two characters haven’t been friendly in the Marvel Universe for a long time now, it’ll be interesting to the see interaction between them.

Mouse Guard/Fraggle Rock: Honestly, I haven’t read Mouse Guard yet, but I’ve got friends that absolutely rave about how great it is. And trying new titles is what Free Comic Book Day is all about!
