On Saturday, October 26, participating comic shops across North America and around the world will hand out more than 1.7 million free comics to anyone who comes into their shop during Halloween ComicFest! During the event, anyone who goes into a participating comic shop can choose a free comic from the 28 titles available this year and participate in the fun Halloween-themed activities hosted by the comic shops. The annual event is a great way to welcome curious, first-time readers as well as longtime comic book fans into local shops to experience all the horror comics and spooky delights comic shops have to offer.
Diamond Comic Distributors revealed the artwork from Eisner Award-winning creator Kelley Jones (Red Rain, Bloodstorm) for this year’s Halloween ComicFest (HCF) 2019 commemorative T-shirt. The T-Shirt, featured in the August issue of Diamond’s PREVIEWS catalog, is currently available for pre-order at comic shops, and will be available for purchase on October 16th.
