What could be better than candy this Halloween Weekend?
How about FREE comic books!!!
Saturday, October 29th is Halloween ComicFest 2016.
What is HalloweenFest?
It’s a one-of-a-kind event held at local comic shops. It gives a chance for pop-culture fans and comic book enthusiasts alike to enjoy the free comics and HCF Mini-Comic Polypacks and participate in the Greatest Halloween Costume Contest.
According to the Halloween ComicFest website, there are 32 titles—19 full-sized comics and 13 mini-comics—available, including select titles from Marvel Comics (Darth Vader: Doctor Aphra #1, Spidey #1, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: You Choose the Story #1, and The Haunted Mansion #1), DC Comics (DC Superhero Girls #1 and Scooby Apocalypse/Hanna-Barbera Sampler), Dark Horse Comics (Harrow County #1), and IDW Publishing (My Little Pony: The Haunted Dungeon) among other spooktacular tales.
Last year my kids and I attended our first HalloweenFest at Powers Comics in Green Bay. We had such a blast! Not only did we each get to pick 3 free comic books there was also an assortment of free bookmarks, stickers and candy. Powers Comics was lucky enough to have New York Times bestselling author, John Jackson Miller, signing his own comic books for anyone that purchased his work.
