On top of that they are hosting the Greatest Costume Contest ever and are giving away over 500 prizes in an online costume contest on their website. Visit www.halloweencomicfest.com to find a participating store near you and to vote for me as Axe Cop in the Indy category!
Once you find a participating store in your area here are some of the free books that you can get your hands on. There are four full-size comics and 11 mini-comics for you to try to get a hold of. My five-year old son is most excited about Cow Boy, Johnny Boo, and Axe Cop. With a great selection of comics for all ages, this is one event I hope becomes an annual tradition.
