Halloween ComicFest is the second biggest free comic book event of the year! Taking place on Oct. 26th and 27th at participating comic book specialty shops across the country and beyond, 22 Halloween themed comics and mini comics will be given out for FREE to anyone who goes to a participating comic shop. The titles of the comics include Batman, Spider-Man, Thor, Adventure Time, Archie, Sonic, and many more that comic fans of all ages will enjoy.
Individual stores will also be hosting their own special events such as sales, comic signings, artist appearances and drawings, costume contests, and also community awareness programs such as blood drives and fundraisers.
Also during the weekend, "The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest Ever" will be taking place and runs until Nov. 15. To enter the contest, participants must get a costume contest button from a participating comic shop (which they can get while they are getting their free comics), submit a picture of themselves in costume featuring the official button, and then start gaining votes on the website. Two random winners will win $500 to the comic shop of their choice along with participants winning other great prizes! To enter, go to www.halloweencomicfest.com/costumecontest.
With over 1,400 stores participating and over one million Halloween ComicFest full sized comics and mini comics ordered for the event, this year's Halloween ComicFest is going to be huge! To find a participating comic shop, go to www.halloweencomicfest.com/StoreLocator and see all the FREE comics at www.halloweencomicfest.com
Halloween ComicFest is a great event for both comic and Halloween fans, allowing them to get FREE Halloween themed comics and participate in family fun festivities! Hope to see you there!
