Halloween comes but once a year. Halloween on a Wednesday (aka New Comic Day)? The next one won’t be until 2018 and the next one after in 2029. To celebrate this rare combination of geek-out fun, many comic shops are hosting events. The best ones are tying in to Avatar’s new on-going zombie series, Night of the Living Dead: Aftermath, since the first issue launches on Halloween!
For example, Collector’s Corner in Baltimore, Maryland, is hosting an event starting at 5pm which will include a costume contest, free comics and toys giveaways, a zombie SFX artist giving free zombie makeovers, an artist giving free zombie sketch caricatures, as well as a screening of the 1968 Night of Living Dead classic cult movie! Comic Book Jones in NYC will be hosting a costume contest, as well as giving away comics, candy and Night of the Living Dead promos.
Avatar Press will be awarding the top three retailers with the best NOTLD-themed events! For details on how to enter, click here.
