|10.09.2012 – Halloween is fast approaching and every year it has become an annual tradition to dress up in your scariest costume. The tradition for some never outgrows them as they still go on a trick or treat but this year it would become interesting as Halloween and Comics team up for the first ever Halloween Comic Fest 2012!
It’s the same organizers behind the Free Comic Book Day that happens every first Saturday of May who are bringing this tradition and one comic book shop in the Philippines has already shown interest.
Comic Odyssey the same store that started the Free Comic Book Day event has announced that it would give away 400 pieces of comic books on hand for the first ever Halloween Comic Fest and as news immediately spread out there was already an official Facebook Page was set up for the Asian region covering other countries like Malaysia, Thailand and Singapore.
Under his “Red Robot” publication he released this art book collecting his works from the day he started doodling as a young child to the current inspiring works that we know in Malinky Robot and his other collaborations. His ground breaking work on Wonderland that produced an Eisner nomination for the pencilling/inking category would forever stand out in this art book.
There’s already a list of comic book titles to be given away and you can see some notable books which has been posted from the Facebook Page!
