Thursday Morning Superhero: Halloween ComicFest Edition

This Saturday marks the return of Halloween ComicFest! Participating comic book stores will be handing out free comics and more!  It is the perfect time to test out your Halloween costume and pick up some free comics to boot.  My family has a tradition of ordering the comics ahead of time to hand out to trick-or-treaters.  Here are the five books that I hope to pick up on Saturday with my kids.

The Adventures of Cthulhu Jr. and Dastardly Dirk - Dastardly Dick is hoping to attain supervillain status and is trying to prove himself and climb the ranks. He is tasked with capturing the son of Cthulhu and it doesn't quite go as planned. I tend to jump at any opportunity to share a Cthulhu book with my kids.

Star Wars Age of Rebellion: Boba Fett #1 - While it isn't a halloween book (sorry), I did pick up my Rise of Skywalker tickets this week and have Star Wars on the brain. I don't often decline the opportunity to learn more about everyone's favorite bounty hunter and this book is no exception.

Just Beyond - If your house is similar to mine your kids have busted out the R.L. Stine books for some kid friendly scares. This book is about some kids who encounter aliens on a family camping trip.  Apparently there is something out there in the woods!

House of Fear: Attack of the Killer Snowmen - This is touted as a fun and spooky adventure for kids
of all ages, but you had me at killer snowmen.  I am always down for a holiday crossover and don't mind a bit of Christmas mixed with my Halloween.

DCeased #1 - A pandemic has hit earth that is turning everyone into ultra violent zombie type creatures.  The cover evokes Walking Dead crossover (with faster zombies) and I am on board for some zombie fun at Halloween.
