Marvel adds a second title in addition to its Gold level Hulk/Venom #1, announcing the Silver level Avengers/Spider-Man #1, which brings together two of Marvel's top franchises. Spider-Man and the Avengers are regular FCBD stars for Marvel and have co-headlined FCBD books in previous years.

Also notable is the continued absence of DC titles from any Free Comic Book Day plans. In previous years, DC has been a Gold level sponsor of the event, however DC's split with Diamond in the early days of the COVID-19 pandemic may have complicated DC's plans to join Free Comic Book Day 2021, as Diamond distributes the planned FCBD releases. DC previously announced plans to participate in FCBD, and has not publicly rescinded that announcement.

"Every year, we strive to bring fans a memorable Free Comic Book Day experience, and with this year being our 20th anniversary, we hope it will be the best yet!" said Ashton Greenwood, Free Comic Book Day spokesperson. "The variety of this year's comic book selection is really exciting! There's something for every kind of fan, from the long-time reader to the comic book curious. We know comic book retailers are looking forward to treating everyone to a day of fun and discovery, so we hope fans will be able to safely visit their comic shops to celebrate!"

Free Comic Book Day traditionally occurs the first Saturday in May, often coinciding with a major Marvel Cinematic Universe movie. Black Widow is set for an early May debut, but due to COVID-19 the organizers of FCBD have decided to push this in-person event back to August 14. These free comic books will be available (while supplies last) at participating comic book shops - and be exclusive to these comic shops, meaning no bookstores or digital release for the time being.
