Free Comic Book Day features a variety transmedia tie-ins. In fact, it's noteworthy that many of the comics have an expression in some other medium (e.g., television, movies, etc.). Steve Bennett at ICv2 was pleased with the variety of comics offered:
This year there are sixty FCBD offerings this year and I can safely say that among them there is something for absolutely everyone. Usually that phrase is just a trite cliche, a bit of harmless hyperbole, but this time I can confirm that it is absolutely accurate. I can say that because I got to see copies of most of the comics ahead of time for review purposes thanks to Deborah Moreland, PR and Marketing Associate of Diamond Comic Distributors who was good enough to send me copies of most of them for review ahead of time. I often worry in print that I may be getting a bit jaded about comics but I can happily report that I still get a bit of a visceral thrill when somebody gives me that many free funny books all at once.
On the "about to be made into a movie" front, there's Guardians of the Galaxy who will soon debut in their own Marvel movie. There's also Rocket Raccoon, because who can get enough of a gun-toting raccoon? There are plenty of television shows in print as well, including Avatar, Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers, Spongebob Squarepants, Transformers vs. G.I. Joe, Scrooge and Donald Duck, Teen Titans, The Smurfs, and The Tick. There are even video game tie-ins, like Mega Man and Street Fighter.
