Autum’s free day of comics will once again coincide with Halloween, and will include a total of 28 free books for you to pick up.
Who doesn’t like free comics? No one, and that’s why we have a pair of days every year where that’s exactly what you can acquire from your local comics shop. In the fall, we get Halloween ComicsFest, which is more or less the same even that “Free Comic Book Day” is in the spring.
The difference of course, is that the fall version (which is a totally separate thing) is branded with Halloween flavor. It’s meant to be a kind of safe trick or treat experience for kids. It includes activities for participating shops and the ability to grab a book out of the selection of freebies.
Coming up on the event too, there’s quite a bit to be looking forward to.
Twenty-eight free comics, including 19 full-size comics and 9 mini comics can be picked up. This year’s titles include Marvel Comics’ Ghost Rider: King of Hell #1, Iron Man: Road to Iron Man 2020, Miles Morales: Spider-Man #0, Star Wars: Boba Fett #1; DC Comics’ DCEASED #1, The Secret Spiral of Swamp Kid/ Black Canary: Ignite, and DC Superhero Girls: At Metropolis High; and Pokémon Adventures, Sonic the Hedgehog, and Spook House, among other spooktacular titles for comic readers of all ages.Halloween ComicsFest
In addition tot the free books, there will also be a costume contest.
Halloween ComicFest also features “The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest Ever!”, running now through November 1st at 2pm EST. Fans can enter one of five categories – Superhero/Comics, Video Games, TV/Movie, Horror, or Original – just by taking a picture of themselves in costume and submitting the photo on the Halloween ComicFest website. Six winners will be selected at random: five first prize winners who will receive a $50 shopping spree to their local comic shop and one grand prize winner who will receive a $500 shopping spree to their local comic shop!Halloween ComicsFest
