Halloween ComicFest is this Saturday, Oct 29, at Heroes Comics & Gaming and other local comic book stores!

Get all the details about the FREE comics and other Halloween treats you can score at the only comic book store owned by a haunter this Saturday during Halloween ComicFest!

Fifteen years ago the North American comic book industry launched Free Comic Book Day to introduce new readers to the joys of reading comics, call back former comic book readers and thank current buyers for their continued support. This event takes place annually on the first Saturday in May.

In 2012, Diamond Distributors created Halloween ComicFest to serve the same purpose in the fall on the last Saturday before Halloween, only this time the free comics and events surrounding the fest would be themed to the orange and black holiday!

Louisville has several fine comic book stores and pop culture emporiums, but only one of them is owned by someone in the Halloween business. Earlier this year, Kevin Stich, owner/operator of the notorious Haunted Hotel on S 4th Street, opened Heroes Comics & Gaming at 361 Baxter Avenue in the Highlands, and this Saturday Stich’s comic book store is hosting its first Halloween ComicFest in true haunter style.

Besides the FREE comics (I’ll get to those in just a minute), kids can trick-or-treat and get free candy and participate in a costume contest. There will be one costume contest for kids and one for adults. There will also be a store wide Halloween ComicFest sale with everything in store being 25% off and a large selection of $1 comics. Vintage toys and board games will be 40% off and Funko Pops will all be buy-two-get-one-free.

There will be 19 different full size comics and 13 mini comics to choose from that are completely FREE. To see a complete list and previews for each individual comic, hop on over to the official Halloween ComicFest website at http://www.halloweencomicfest.com/Catalog. Here are some of my favorites this year:
