Posted 09/12/2012 by

Mei 2013 is nog best een eindje weg, maar toch begint de marketingmolen voor deze heugelijke gebeurtenis alweer goed op gang te komen. Op de eerste zaterdag van die maand is het namelijk weer zover: Free Comic Book Day. Op die dag liggen in de stripwinkels weer hoge stapels van speciaal voor deze dag gemaakte strips gereed om gratis meegenomen te worden door de klanten. Het aanbod van strips is altijd heel gevarieerd dus er zit zeker en vast wel iets tussen voor iedereen. Vele uitgeverijen doen hun best een zo leuk mogelijke comic te maken om op die manier nieuwe lezers voor hun titels te vergaren.

De gratis strips zijn onderverdeeld in twee categorieën, die van de Gold Sponsors en die van de Silver Sponsors. Veel verschil is er niet bij het eindproduct, maar de comics van de Gold Sponsors worden iets groter en vaker geadverteerd omdat deze uitgeverijen iets meer geld er aan uitgeven. Dus je gaat uiteindelijk ook veel meer zogenaamde Gold-titels zien liggen, maar als wij jullie één tip mogen geven: check zeker ook altijd de lijst van de Silver-comics. Daar zitten namelijk heel vaak echte juweeltjes tussen die je anders misschien zou vergeten. Vorig jaren zaten daar bijvoorbeeld exclusieve previews van The Hypernaturals (BOOM! Studios) en X-O Manowar (Valiant Entertainment) tussen, dewelke allebei toch wel echte toppers zijn gebleken. Vraag desnoods aan je favoriete stripwinkel om een exemplaar voor jou te reserveren zodat je ze zeker niet misloopt. Want zij gaan zich namelijk van nature uit ook meer richten op de Gold-comics. Deze zijn natuurlijk ook altijd zeer interessant want zo kon je vorig jaar een gratis comic scoren van Transformers (IDW Publishing), Star Wars (Dark Horse Comics), Adventure Time (BOOM! Studios), Avengers (Marvel Comics), The New 52 Preview (DC Comics) en vele anderen.

Je ziet het, je zou wel gek zijn om niet die eerste zaterdag van mei even langs te gaan bij je favoriete stripwinkel! Maar ook als je jouw comics online koopt, moet je geen schrik hebben dat je in de kou blijft staan. Vrijwel alle online winkels doen op hun eigen manier ook mee aan FCBD. Ze sturen dan bijvoorbeeld gratis strips mee met je bestelling als je die rond die periode plaatst of je kan eventueel zelfs expliciet kiezen welke je allemaal wil. Ze verzinnen er wel wat op hoor, ze zouden wel gek zijn om het niet te doen.

Deze week raakten alvast de Gold Sponsors voor de 2013 editie van Free Comic Book Day bekend. We geven ze je graag even mee:
