It was only a couple of weekends ago that Batman Day was held for 2016. That seems to be turning into a successful yearly event at local comics shops! Coming at the end of October will be Halloween ComicFest, the fall’s version of Free Comic Book Day. It will be held on the last Saturday of the month, the 29th. There will be free comics and other treats galore at participating locations!
[Free Comics] Diamond Comic Distributors to give away two million comics during Halloween ComicFest 2016
In it’s fifth year, Halloween ComicFest 2016 is expected to give away more than two million full-size and mini-comics at 1,900 locations around the country.
Okay, I admit it – Halloween is one of my very least favorite holidays in the year! Ghosts and goblins and such just don’t interest me very often. I mean, I enjoy Supernatural on The CW, but when it comes to comics, I usually am not all that drawn into spooky stuff. (Doesn’t mean I don’t like well-told horror/suspense when I find it, though!) This week, I’ve been intrigued to watch an original animated series on Cartoon Network called Over the Garden Wall. It’s spooky and yet sweet in the way things out of the ordinary are told. It’s been
“Investigating the forgotten corners of our world, one monster at a time.” That’s the premise behind Dept. of Monsterology, a comic series that began exploring the unexplained and unusual in its first miniseries in 2013. I loved both the concept and the execution of this book, so I highly recommended it when it first came out. I was thrilled to find out that a second story was in the works, and the first issue of that new story arc is now available digitally at the Renegade Entertainment website. Oh, and if you missed the first miniseries, you can download the collected
Halloween approaches and while all the young children dream of dressing up like Power Rangers, fairy princesses, Jedi, and dinosaurs; women roughly 15 years older are preparing their sexy Power Rangers, sexy fairy princesses, sexy Jedi, and sexy dinosaur costumes. Which is awful. Right?

Itâ€™s the most wonderful time, of the year… This has got to be one of the best weeks of the year.Â The spooky decorations are out, the little tykes are trying on their costumes for a night for mischief, and the dental industry is primed to make a killing over the next couple of months as kidâ€™s teeth start falling out from candy rot.Â DC is getting into the act too, with an all new seasonal special that should spook us all.
Halloween is not too far off – especially if you have visited one of those large retail chains recently – and Major Spoilers will have another costume contest this year with big prizes. Also getting into the Halloween spirit is Archie Comics, who sent us the cover images and solicitations for two “spooktacular” issues shipping in September.
Really? DC Comics has announced issues #2 and #3 have sold out and will be heading back to the printer for a second run. “I’m both slightly stunned and incredibly gratified at the fan response to FREDDY VS. JASON VS. ASH,” says cowriter Jeff Katz. “Obviously, I always believed in the commercial and creative potential of this match-up, but to see it received with such intense enthusiasm has made for one of the most fulfilling experiences of my life.
