What is Halloween ComicFest?
Halloween ComicFest is an annual event held on the Saturday on or before Halloween. It’s an international event that celebrates comics and the local comic shops that build community. Like Free Comic Book Day, you can show your support for ACE Comics by visiting the stores in Colchester and Southend where, among other things, you can grab some exclusive Halloween ComicFest free comics (while stocks last – details further down)!
Halloween ComicFest is the perfect excuse to introduce friends and family to the many reasons why comics and comic shops are great – zombies, vampires, monsters and aliens and more, we have it all when it comes to Halloween fun! Major publishers like DC, Marvel, Image, Dark Horse and IDW Publishing put out free comics especially for Halloween ComicFest every year.
When and where is Halloween ComicFest?
What’s happening in store?
As well as giving away free Halloween ComicFest comics, we will be holding a Back Issue Comics Sale, featuring thousands of specially selected back issues all available for just 50 pence each!
While we don’t run a costume competition, customers are certainly welcome to dress-up to celebrate the spooky season!
So that everyone can enjoy some great free-reading, there is a limit of four free comics per comic reader. Please be aware that a number of titles are recommended for mature readers, so we will not be distributing those particular titles to children. The free comics will all be on a first-come-first-served basis while stocks last – they are usually all gone by the end of the day, so make sure you don’t arrive too late. Here’s the list of free comics that have been announced for Halloween ComicFest 2019.
Full Size Comics
Please note, ACE Comics cannot guarantee that all of the comics listed above will be available in store. Additionally, while a selection of the Mini Comics may be available for free at the event, the packs of 25 will be unavailable for purchase from ACE Comics
