While you're getting your costumes ready and mapping out your trick or treat journey through the neighborhood, don't forget to pencil in a stop at your favorite comic shop for Halloween ComicFest. You can pick up a load of free comics, including two different Archie books, which the cast of The CW's Riverdale recommends you do.
Actors KJ Apa (Archie Andrews) and Camila Mendes (Veronica Lodge) took a minute to tell fans why they should stop by their local comic store this Saturday.
"Check out the free Afterlife with Archie book or the Archie main comic and tune into Riverdale early next year!"
Michael Moccio, the spokesperson for ComicFest, described the event, saying: "This year, Halloween ComicFest gets to kick off Halloween weekend festivities with its one-of- a-kind events at local comic shops. We're excited for pop-culture fans and comic book enthusiasts alike to enjoy the free comics and HCF Mini-Comic Polypacks and participate in 'The Greatest Halloween Costume Contest.' Each year, we've seen larger participation from retailers and fans and we're looking forward to seeing that trend continue with Halloween ComicFest 2016."
