For the past few years, Halloween Comic Fest has put a spooky, seasonal spin on what comic fans experience each May during Free Comic Book Day. Halloween Comic Fest (October 29, 2016) is a fall celebration of comics that offers families a chance to enjoy fun activities at their local comic shop, with a full assortment of free comics available, along with costume contests, artist appearances and more. This year’s lineup boasts 19 full-sized comics, along with 13 mini-comics. Among the books available this year are titles from DC and MARVEL, along with numerous indies, spanning series’ such as DC SUPER HERO GIRLS, THE NIGHTMARE BEFORE CHRISTMAS, Star Wars’ DARTH VADER, MIRACULOUS: TALES OF LADYBUG & CAT NOIR, GRUMPY CAT, EVIL DEAD, AFTERLIFE WITH ARCHIE, MY LITTLE PONY, POKEMON and more (see them all here).

Additionally, those looking to be among the coolest houses on the street can order special 25-pack polybags of this year’s mini-comics, perfect for handing out to Trick-or-Treaters in lieu of candy. Get details on those here, and use the Comic Shop Locator to find a participating comic shop near you!
