Family Friendly Event Promoting Reading and Literacy
We’re proud to participate in Halloween ComicFest (HCF) on Saturday, October 27th. As the second largest event in the comic book industry, HCF prepares for thousands of participating stores to host families and kids as they give away millions of comics as a way to promote reading.
Halloween ComicFest is an incredibly fun event, especially for kids and families. There’s truly something for everyone of all ages. There are 12 mini comics this year, suitable for all ages, that are designed for kids to enjoy. Even if you’ve never picked up a comic book, we want to welcome everyone to The Collective on October 27th, because we know everyone will find something they’ll enjoy.
The 12 all ages mini comics are wonderful this year … there’s everything from Rocky & Bullwinkle to Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Comics have proven themselves to get kids engaged with storytelling. Kids who read growing up develop better communication and logical thinking skills, show enhanced concentration, and are more likely to succeed academically compared to their peers. We’re proud comics can provide fun, wholesome family entertainment while developing these crucial skills.
Regular updates, information about comic books, and a list of participating publishers and their free comics are all available online at www.halloweencomicfest.com.
Halloween ComicFest kicks off at 10:00 a.m. and runs until 6:00 p.m.
