This Saturday and Sunday (October 26th and 27th), stores will be giving away up to 22 free Halloween themed full-sized and mini comics featuring Batman, Thor, Spider-Man, My Little Pony, Adventure Time and other popular and new titles as part of the 2nd Annual Halloween ComicFest.
Crowds will flock to 1 of 2 local comic shops to get their free comics and take part in store sales, costume contests, comic signings and artist’s drawings among many other spooktacular events. Some stores are using Halloween ComicFest to promote community awareness through hosting blood drives, encouraging donations to various foundations, running silent auctions for charity and much more to give back to their community.
“Comic and Halloween fans will have a blast at this year’s event as more stores are participating, hosting their own activities to make the weekend more memorable in addition to more Halloween comics being given out for free,” said Dan Manser, Diamond’s Director of Marketing. “Halloween ComicFest is another great free comic day, allowing fans to dress up in their scariest, goofiest, most remarkable Halloween costumes, and have fun with other fans during the weekend.”
Stores will also participate in promoting “The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest Ever”, where customers can submit their costume photos to the Halloween ComicFest website for a chance to win prizes. Two randomly chosen winners will win $500 to the comic shop of their choice, along with other great prizes such as graphic novels, collectible statues, pop-culture related items and more. To enter the contest or for more information, contestants are encouraged to go to www.halloweencomicfest.com/costumecontest.
The free comics are great for comic fans and readers of all ages, giving them the opportunity to discover new titles and series they will enjoy.
