Hallowe’en Comic Fest is the Free Comic Book Day for October that everyone seems to forget. Run by Diamond Comic Distributors, it sees publishers put out free comics, and selling bags of mini-comics intended for people to give out to trick-or-treaters at home.
There’s usually a lesser selection that for Free Comic Book Day, but a strong push for All Ages and younger reader-friendly material rather than anything more adult focused, even with the horror themes of the season.
Last year saw 32 titles given away, 19 full-sized comics and 13 mini-comics.
The giveaways were Darth Vader: Doctor Aphra, Spidey, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: You Choose the Story, The Haunted Mansion, DC Superhero Girls and Scooby Apocalypse/Hanna-Barbera Sampler, Harrow County, My Little Pony: The Haunted Dungeon, Miraculous, Zombie Tramp, Black Eyed Kids, Three Stooges, Afterlife With Archie, Aspen Universe Adventures, Wraithborn, Quilte, Kitaro, Evil Dead 2 and Junji Ito Tomie.
While the mini-comics sold in 25 lots were made up of Peach & The Isle Of Monsters, Archies Madhouse, Booooooom Box, Mummy’s Always Right, Grumpy Cat, Johnny Boo, Little Tails, Lunch Witch, Mickey’s Inferno, Zombie Ca,p, Carpenter’s Travellers Tale, Tim Burton Nightmare Before Christmas Manga and Pokemon XY.
Expect something similar this year for October 28th. The titles of which will be announced on their Facebook page on Tuesday…
