These first twelve titles are "Gold Sponsor" titles, which come from top publishers, while the remaining 38 "Silver Sponsor" titles will be announced on Wednesday, December 16. They will all be available for free at your local comic book store on May 7, 2016, which also happens to be the 15th anniversary of the annual event.

In addition to fan favorites like a new story from Serenity, which will be in a special Dark Horse edition along with Hellboy and Aliens, and four new stories from Doctor Who that follow the Ninth, Tenth, Eleventh, and Twelfth Doctors, there will also be projects that have yet to be revealed from Marvel and DC. Marvel's may just be a new edition of the Avengers no. 0 that came out in October, but DC is shrouded in genuine mystery.
