Participating comic shops across the U.S., Canada and internationally will hand out free comics to anyone who comes into their shop to celebrate Halloween ComicFest, the second biggest free comic book event of the year. Adults and kids can choose from 19 free comics and participate in the activities the comic shops host.

  • Twilight Zone Comics, Glen Burnie

During Halloween ComicFest, adults and kids can get free Halloween and horror themed comics and mini-comics published specifically for the occasion. The free comics are great for kids and adults, with 12 full-sized comics and seven mini-comics. Titles for this year include: DC’s Scooby Doo Team-Up with Batman #1 , Marvel’s Secret Wars #1, Afterlife with Archie #1, My Little Pony, Plants vs. Zombies, Angry Birds, and other haunting and fun tales.

This year anyone can celebrate Halloween ComicFest in their homes with the Holloween ComicFest Mini-Comic packs, which are available to purchase solely from comic shops. Each pack contains 20 mini-comics that are great to pass out on Halloween to trick-or-treaters.

There is also  “The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest Ever” presented by Halloween ComicFest running until Nov. 9 on the Halloween ComicFest website. Upload a picture of yourself in costume holding one of the free Halloween ComicFest 2014 comics and enter one of five categories. Prizes include $500 and $100 shopping sprees to the winner’s comic shop of choice in addition to category prizes for the participants who receive the most votes for their costume from website visitors. Voting will take place Nov. 2-9. Only photos with a Halloween ComicFest 2014 comic in the picture will be accepted.

“This year we want communities to participate in Halloween ComicFest to not only discover new types of comics from the great selection offered, but to see their local comic shop as a fun Halloween destination, a great place to meet like-minded people, and to discover the cool comic and pop-culture items available,” said Halloween ComicFest spokesperson Deborah Moreland. “What makes this year unique for Halloween ComicFest are the Halloween ComicFest Mini-Packs that are available for fans to purchase and use not only as an alternative to candy on Halloween, but as an opportunity to pass on the fun of discovering and reading comics to the next generation of readers.”
