For the last few years comics publishers and retailers have treated people to a selection of FREE books the weekend before Halloween.  Yes you aren't being tricked, I said free comic books! We enjoy including our local comic book shop into our family's trick-or-treat routine this time of year and my kids always have a great time participating in HALLOWEEN COMICFEST. This year's event is taking place on SATURDAY, OCTOBER 27, 2018 at comic book shops located across the United States.

HALLOWEEN COMICFEST 2018 will feature a selection of 34 comic books with 22 of them being full sized and 12 being mini-comics. There will be something that will be of interest for everyone with ratings on the comics ranging from adult (Mature) on A WALK THROUGH HELL to all-ages family friendly fare including HALLOWEEN WITCH and MONSTROUS. All ages means a comic book should be suitable for everyone from preschoolers to grandparents to enjoy. The full sized comic books have more of a teen focus with titles like FRANKENSTEIN, GOOSEBUMPS, SPIDER-MAN and THOR while the mini-comics will be appealing for younger children with stories like JOHNNY BOO AND THE SPOOKY BOO, ROCKY AND BULLWINKLE ADVENTURES and VAMPLETS: THE UNDEAD PET SOCIETY.

The specially published HALLOWEEN COMICFEST comics will be handed out at participating stores throughout the day on October 27th.  CLICK HERE to use your zip code to locate a participating comic book shop near you.  Make sure to dress up in costume and say trick or treat to get your freebies! Take a picture while you are trick or treating at the comic book shop because there is also an online photo contest for best costumes that appear at the event. You could win a $100 or $500 comic book shopping spree!
