Halloween ComicFest 2016 Comics Announced



Diamond Comic Distributors announces a celebration of comics, comic shops, and pop-culture in October with the fifth annual Halloween ComicFest (HCF) store event! Pop-culture fans are encouraged to participate in the special Halloween events by going to their local comic shop to receive free comics and enter “The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest” on Saturday, October 29th.

During HCF, adults and children alike can go to local participating comic shops to receive free Halloween and horror-theme comics and mini-comics published specifically for Halloween ComicFest. This year, there are 32 titles—19 full-sized comics and 13 mini-comics—available, including select titles from Marvel Comics (Darth Vader: Doctor Aphra #1, Spidey #1, Unbeatable Squirrel Girl: You Choose the Story #1, and The Haunted Mansion #1), DC Comics (DC Superhero Girls #1 and Scooby Apocalypse/Hanna-Barbera Sampler), Dark Horse Comics (Harrow County #1), and IDW Publishing (My Little Pony: The Haunted Dungeon) among other spooktacular tales.

Retailers will also have HCF Mini-Comic Polypacks of 25 copies available for fans to purchase and pass out on Halloween to trick-or-treaters, party-goers, at school events and more. A great way to give out entertaining stories to kids, HCF Mini-Comics also provide an alternative to Halloween candy for trick-or-treaters! The HCF Mini-Comic Polypacks will be available in stores on September 28th and can currently be pre-ordered from comic shops. Fans are encouraged to pre-order specific titles and the number of packs they want to prepare for their Halloween activities.

“This year, Halloween ComicFest gets to kick off Halloween weekend festivities with its one-of-a-kind events at local comic shops,” said Halloween ComicFest spokesperson, Michael Moccio. “We’re excited for pop-culture fans and comic book enthusiasts alike to enjoy the free comics and HCF Mini-Comic Polypacks and participate in ‘The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest.’ Each year, we’ve seen larger participation from retailers and fans and we’re looking forward to seeing that trend continue with Halloween ComicFest 2016.”

Designed to celebrate comic shops as unique community businesses and reach new customers, Halloween ComicFest helps retailers and the entire comics industry springboard into the end of the year holiday selling season. Comic fans are encouraged to check out www.halloweencomicfest.com over the coming months for more information on the event and local retailer activities.
