Sackville’s Black Bowser Comics will host a Halloween Comic-Fest on Saturday, Oct. 26, throughout the day.
While very similar to Free Comic Book Day, which was celebrated earlier this year, the upcoming event will have a Halloween theme. Free comics will be given out all day or while or until the supply runs out.
The local shop will also be hosting a costume competition from noon to 3 p.m. Photos will be taken of all the costumes, potentially for on-line use with the competitor permission, and then judging will take place. Prizes will be presented later in the day.
There will also be other prizes to give away, with a ballot box for purchases. From 2:30-4 p.m. there will be a Magic the Gathering demonstration, where people can come and learn about the game and play. Participants will leave with their very own deck to take home and play with. Aside from all the activities and free items, the store will also be having sale on all merchandise.
