Netflix’s ‘Stranger Things’ Presents Halloween ComicFest 2017 – Saturday, October 28th at Comic Shops!

Halloween ComicFest 2017 is this Saturday! It’s an international event that celebrates comics and the local comic shops that build community. Plus FREE Comics!

Celebrating its sixth year, Halloween ComicFest is an annual event where participating local comic shops across North America and beyond celebrate the Halloween season by giving away free comics to fans. The event takes place the Saturday on or before Halloween each year (October 28th, 2017) and is the perfect opportunity to introduce friends and family to the many reasons why comics and comic shops are great! Comic shops are the perfect location to get into the spooktacular season: from zombies, vampires, monsters, and aliens to costumes and more, comic shops have it all when it comes to Halloween fun!

The Netflix original series Stranger Things 2 is partnering with Halloween ComicFest 2017 bringing participants in-store activations, branded merchandise and more.

Major publishers like DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics, and IDW Publishing put out free comics for fans to enjoy during Halloween. Also available are all-ages mini-comics, perfect to give out to trick-or-treaters or as party favors to inspire the next generation of comics readers!

Fans can also enter “The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest Ever!” each year during Halloween ComicFest. By dressing up in costume and taking a photo with one of the year’s free books, adults and kids can win prize packs from various publishers and win a $500 shopping spree at their local comic shop! It’s a fun way to get the opportunity to broaden your horizons and pick up a product you might not otherwise get–it’s also a great way to support your local comic shop and the small business owners that manage the store.
