Every year, the first Saturday in May is FREE COMIC BOOK DAY. This is a huge event where participating shops give away special editions of comics to help promote new series, stories or special one shots.
What I didn’t know was that there is a similar event that occurs in October called Halloween Comic fest. It’s pretty much the same as FCBD, with 30 titles available. 18 are full size editions and 12 are mini comics. All are free, but the mini comics are available in packs of 25 for $4.99. This a good buy to give to trick-or-treaters.
A complete listing of all the HCF titles, including the HCF Commemorative T-Shirt by Eisner Award-winning artist Francesco Francavilla, can be found in the July issue of Diamond Comic Distributors’ PREVIEWS catalog, on sale at all local comic shops on June 28th, 2017. They can also be viewed online at http://www.halloweencomicfest.com. You can also view them below.
