On October 26th and 27th, Diamond Comic Distributors will be holding the second annual Halloween ComicFest. Taking place just before All Hallow’s Eve, participating comic book stores will have a selection of free mini-comics from a grouping major publishers. A lot of the shops also run Halloween themed promotions and costume parties/contest with some sweet giveaways.
It’s really just another excuse for publishers to hand out free comics, and hopefully, given the time of year, there will be some more horror in the mix (we know the Scooby-Doo/Batman crossover is one of the books).
As with last year, expect a Halloween costume contest across the country with a $500 shopping spree as the prize.
