This Halloween, Save Their Teeth and Feed Their Brains

Comic Books Geek Culture Hacking the Holidays

HCF2014Sick of cheap candy at Halloween? This year, consider an alternative: Comic books.

Diamond Comics (the folks who get the comics to comic book stores) is sponsoring a Halloween Comic Fest! On October 25th, you can walk into any participating comic shop and get a free Halloween ComicFest comic. This includes some top shelf comics like Batman: The Legends of the Dark Knight Halloween Special, Grimm Fairy Tales Halloween Special, and Marvel Secret Wars.

Even better, you can pick up packs of mini-comics to give out in place of candy to those ghosts and goblins who come a-knockin’ at your door on All Hallow’s Eve promising tricks and/or treats. There are seven titles to choose from — including Angry Birds, Betty and Veronica, Plants vs. Zombies, BOOM! Studios Fright Fest, LBX Little Battlers, Mermin and Vamplets —that come in packs of 20 mini-comics at $4.99 per pack from finer comic-book stores everywhere.

  1. Are you certain you can still purchase the packs of comics at comic shops? I had to preorder mine back in July. The cutoff was 7/24. They started to come in last week, but only for those of us that ordered.
