Halloween ComicFest will be held on October 29 at participating comic shops all across America, with 2016 marking its 5th anniversary. Much like Free Comic Book Day, which takes place in May each year, Halloween ComicFest is a great time to make your way down to your local comic shop, join in the celebration, and score some free comics! The difference is that the comics are Halloween themed and each store usually holds Halloween themed events, such as costume contests, to aid in the festivities. The Middle Georgia area is lucky enough to have three great locations to choose from.

Heroes and Villains at 117 Russell Parkway, Suite F in Warner Robins will have a storewide sale with discounts up to 50% off, three separate costume contests (kids, teens, and adults) complete with store credit prizes for first place and honorable mention, door prizes, and free comics for the kids. See their Facebook page for complete details or set yourself a reminder with their event page.

Vigilantes Comics & Café, located at 1291 S Houston Lake Rd, Suite J in Warner Robins, will celebrate from 11:00 am until 8:00 pm. Everyone who attends will receive free comics and candy on a first come, first served basis. Vigilantes will start the day with a mini sale. There will be several events for kids, such as carnival games, a coloring contest, and a costume contest. For gamers, there will be a Halloween edition Heroclix tournament and a Spooky Magic the Gathering tournament. Visit their Facebook page for more information. They also have an event page with a full schedule of events.

Comics Plus at 4007 Northside Drive in Macon will also be participating in the event, but could not be reached for event details.

You can find out more about Halloween ComicFest at their Facebook page or visit their official website where you can locate other participating retailers.
