Halloween ComicFest is the celebration of Halloween and comics! Celebrate Halloween ComicFest on Saturday, October 28th with free comics!

Head to a participating comic shop on October 28th to get free comics! Also be on the look-out for mini-comic packs that will be available in comic shops which are great to pass out to trick-or-treaters on Halloween!

Your local comic book specialty shop is a great destination for the latest Halloween and horror pop-culture products and merchandise: from comics and graphic novels to costumes, toys and more! Each shop has special Halloween events planned, so make sure you find your closest destination and come in and see what haunts your local comic book shop!

Diamond Comic Distributors announces a celebration of comics, comic shops, and pop-culture in October with the sixth annual Halloween ComicFest (HCF) store event! Pop-culture fans are encouraged to participate in the special Halloween events by going to their local comic shop to receive free comics and enter “The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest” on Saturday, October 28th.

During HCF, adults and children alike can go to local participating comic shops to receive free Halloween and horror-theme comics and mini-comics published specifically for Halloween ComicFest.

This year, HCF features a whole new selection of 30 comics–18 Full Size and 12 Mini-Comics–and features comics for everyone: from tiny goblins and ghouls, to witches and warlocks, to crypt-keepers and zombies alike.

The Full Size comics have a wide range of stories from all ages, to teen, and mature ratings; whereas, the all-ages mini-comics are perfect for the trick-or-treaters in your life! The mini-comics are available to purchase in packs before Halloween ComicFest and are encouraged to be given out in classrooms and to trick-or-treaters on Halloween night.

“We’re so excited for Halloween ComicFest this year,” said Halloween ComicFest spokesperson Michael Moccio. “Halloween ComicFest continues to grow year after year and with this year’s selection of titles, we’re confident 2017 will be no exception. There’s definitely something for everyone, and we’re excited for all the trick-or-treaters this year to get a whole new batch of mini-comics featuring a great variety of titles!”

Designed to celebrate comic shops as unique community businesses and reach new customers, Halloween ComicFest helps retailers and the entire comics industry springboard into the end of the year holiday selling season.

Come and celebrate Halloween this year with FREE comics!
