Do you want free comic books? Well, on Saturday, October 26, 2019, participating comic shops across North America and around the world will hand out more than 1.7 million free comics to anyone who comes into their shop during Halloween ComicFest!
During the upcoming event, anyone who goes into a participating comic shop can choose a free comic from the 28 titles available this year and participate in the Halloween-themed activities hosted by the comic shops.
This sure looks like a nice opportunity for you to select a comic book you’ve never read before as well as have some Halloween-centric fun with other geeks.
The 28 free comics include 19 full-size comics and 9 mini-comics.
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
- DC Superhero Girls: At Metropolis High
- Pokémon Adventures
- Sonic the Hedgehog
- Spook House
The variety includes something for everyone.
Halloween ComicFest also features “The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest Ever!”, running now through November 1, 2019, at 2 PM EST.
The categories are Superhero/Comics, Video Games, TV/Movie, Horror, or Original. Fans can enter by taking a picture of themselves in costume and submitting the photo on the Halloween ComicFest website.
Six winners will be selected at random. There will be 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.
$500 is a lot for comic book shopping. That’s a great prize!
“We want communities to participate in Halloween ComicFest not only to discover the great selection of comics offered, but also to experience comic shops as premiere destinations for spooky Halloween fun. Your local comic shop is a great place to meet like-minded people and discover new comics and cool pop-culture items available each week and all year long,” said Halloween ComicFest spokesperson Ashton Greenwood. “This year is the perfect time to visit your local comic book shop and celebrate Halloween ComicFest!”
