Comic-book fans view Halloween equivalently like a kid views a stack of presents underneath the tree on Christmas morning. All the rules are lifted for this one sacred day, and avid readers get free reign to dress up like their favorite superhero – or villain – as they live their cartoon fantasy. Comic stores from across Houston will take part in the annual celebration with Halloween ComicFest 2017, offering free titles to all who enter their doors. Even more, Stranger Things fans will have a nerd-gasm. The popular Netflix series is the official title sponsor, and producers will bring in-store activations and branded merchandise. They will join other graphics pioneers like Dark Horse Comics, DC Comics, IDW Publishing, Image Comics and Marvel Comics.

October 28. For a list of participating local vendors, visit halloweencomicfest.com. Free.

Each year, thousands of participating shops celebrate Halloween and comics by giving away comics to millions of fans and introducing them to the wonders of comics. “Halloween ComicFest is a great event for the whole community.
