IF YOU’VE BEEN THINKING about paying a visit to your local comic book shop, consider ComicFest 2016 your personal invitation!
This fifth annual giveaway event is the comic book industry’s way of saying “thank you” not only to fans, but to the local comic dealers who work so hard to keep this community thriving. All the major publishers are involved, as well as the smaller, more boutique labels that are doing such groundbreaking work these days.
All of the books featured this year—listed below; 19 full-sized comics and 13 mini-comics—were specially created for this event, so you’re guaranteed to leave the store with something special. And that’s not all. Costumes are encouraged (though not required!) because a big part of the ComicFest festivity is the “Greatest Halloween Costume Contest!”
It all happens October 29. Make plans to attend. For more information, including a store locator, visit the official ComicFest website.
