The FCBD has selected ten comics from top publishers for the May event.
The titles include Marvel Comics' introductory Avengers #12.1, DC Comics' The New 52 FCBD Edition, Archie Comics' Mega Man: Let the Games Begin, the 2012 Bongo Comics Free-For-All!, BOOM! Studios' Peanuts/Adventure Time Flip Book, IDW Publishing's Transformers #80.5, Image Comics' Image 20 anthology, Dark Horse Comics' Star Wars/Serenity Flip Book and Oni Press's Yo Gabba Gabba.
Archaia is releasing a 48-page Mouse Guard, Labyrinth and More hardcover graphic novel to showcase its top titles.
"We had a record amount of entries from publishers this year with more than 45 different titles," said FCBD spokesperson Leslie Jackson.
"Retailers on the committee had a tough time deciding on which titles to choose for Gold sponsorship, but we're sure fans will be pleased with the lineup for next year."
FCBD is held on the first Saturday of every May for publishers to promote their comics to new readers.
Free Comic Book Day 2012 will be held on May 5.
