This Saturday October 31st, Halloween, it is another chance to get free comic books from the people who bring you Free Comic Book Day with Halloween Comic Fest.
There are comics from Action Lab Entertainment, Aspen, DC, Drawn & Quarterly, Marvel, IDW, Zenescope, Viz Media, Archie, and Graphic India. Plus mini comics from Magnetic Press, Boom Studios, Dark Horse, Famous Monsters, Action Lab, Archie, IDW and Perfect Square. There is horror, superheroes, manga, kids stuff, and more.
To enter their costume contest, first get one of the comics. Then take a picture of yourself in costume holding it, upload it to the site with a short description, and then promote to all.
There are five categories to enter: superhero/comics, TV/movie, horror, gamer, and original. Two grand prize winners (one adult, one child) will be randomly selected to win a $500 shopping spree at a participating Comic Fest comic shop. Two from each category (one adult, one child) from each category will also be randomly selected for a $100 shopping spree. The two contestants (one adult, one child) from each category with the most votes will win a prize pack from the Halloween Comic Fest sponsors.
Check the site to see where you can pick up some comics. Most shops will most likely have their own plans to help celebrate the day. Crit Hit Comics & Games in Princeton will have a costume contest at noon. So will Comic Paradise Plus2 in Weston and Gary’s Comics and More in Morgantown. Spoiler Warning Games and Comics in Danville will be showing Hocus Pocus with refreshments. Comic World in Huntington will have candy.
Good chance to stop by your local comic shop for some fun, comics, and friends. Oh and do not forget to find something to buy too so that you are not just a mooch.
