Celebrate Halloween ComicFest 2018 at Gifts for the Geek

Celebrating its seventh year, Halloween ComicFest is an annual event where participating local comic shops celebrate the Halloween season by giving away free comics to fans. The event takes place the Saturday on or before Halloween each year (so October 27th this year) 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… and this year you can find it all at our favourite local comic book store, Gifts for the Geek.
Featuring a whole new selection of 34 comic book titles from publishers like DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics, and IDW Publishing, 22 of them are your full size and the rest are all-ages mini comics, perfect to give out to trick-or-treaters or as party favours to inspire the next generation of comics readers!
Coined to be the best Halloween ComicFest yet, Halloween ComicFest spokesperson Ashton Greenwood says this year’s comics reflect a broad range of tastes. “The All-Ages Mini Comics feature popular characters like Rocky & Bullwinkle, Archie, and the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, while the Full-Size Comics feature well-known properties like Hellblazer, Spider-Man, and Goosebumps,” he says. “Halloween ComicFest is the perfect time to introduce friends and families to the wonders of comic shops, and experience them as premiere destinations for Halloween fun!”
You can check out the complete list of available comics at halloweencomicfest.com, but we recommend just heading in store on the day and revel in the excitement of Halloween. Along with a free comic, the legends at Gifts of the Geek will also be handing out trick or treat goodies and a Lego mini figure.
Whether you’re an avid fan or a comic book newbie, it is well worth swinging past the store to pick up a free comic book. The store has plenty of other things to check out while you’re there – a wide range of band merch, records, T-shirts and comic book merchandise are also available, along with a number of comic books and graphic novels for those wanting to take home more than one story from the day.
Gifts for the Geek is located at 153-155 Ryrie Street, Geelong.
