Hallowe'en Comicfest

From the same group presumably that do FCBD... just a heads up, as there is an Usagi variant available! Don't know what issue it will be re-printing though, or something brand new.

Looks like the Usagi book will be a mini comic, and,

...the Mini Comics also available for purchase in packs of 25 for $4.99 at the beginning of October—a perfect item to give to trick-or-treaters on Halloween.


...or the perfect item for a certain Dojo... :lol:

I did not realize it would be announced so soon.

It will reprint, in color, a previous horror-type story appropriate for Halloween, though keeping in mind it will be for all ages.

Julie will also provide a new Chiba-Usagi short.

Nifty. I love when I can have at least one issue to really look forward to during these free comic book days.

This sounds cool. Any chance of including the trick-or-treat story from the Nocturnals book?

Hey gang, this is coming up soon, and it looks like the reprint will be the early FB story "Zylla," in color for the first time:

So, are these in stores on 10/26 only? Hope to snag one. Maybe more to use for trick or treaters, if they have these multipacks available.

This one totally slid under my radar. I don't recall seeing this post. I should've ordered a 25-pack.

I didn't order any of these. Wish I did. Last year I order about 3 set of The Tick, Archie, and maybe Sonic. But my LCBS didn't order them for me. So the kids in my neighborhood got candy again. I did put out some free comic book day floppies (no walking dead :D).

Peace, maka

With my recent change in comic shops, I'm not sure if I'll see this. Time for a Panic Attack! :lol:

If you can't find them at a local shop you could always go the eBay route. Quite expensive with shipping IMO.

Yeah can't imagine it's going to be that hard to get hold of.

I assume we will be getting at least a few copies where we can make some available to Dojo members.

My local shop told me they tried to order some of the Hallowe'en Comicfest items but Diamond told them they didn't qualify to order them (despite being a decent sized shop). Also, even though the release date isn't until 10/26, apparently orders had to be in by July something (I had gone in today to see if I could order a pack since it was before the usual 2-weeks ahead cutoff for pre-orders). Since they are so cheap, I was going to buy a pack to make sure the Dojo had enough. Oh well, I tried. :?

My shop didn't get ANY Usagi books at all this week. :cry:

I asked about the Halloween book, and he said he expects them, but not sure when and I should check back next week. If he has bundles I will buy as many as allowable.
