8th annual Halloween ComicFest

This Saturday, October 26th, Carol and John’s Comic Book Shop, 17462 Lorain Ave., will celebrate it’s 8th annual Halloween ComicFest. (See information for times below).

Halloween ComicFest features free comics, candy and photography services. It’s also a great way for children and families to enjoy the ever growing cosplay culture within the shop.


Twenty eight different comic books have been created especially for the day, and will be given out free to people in costume. These books include Spider-Man, DC Super-Hero Girls, Iron Man, Pokemon, Sonic the Hedgehog and more!


We also have Laura Wimbels, from the FACESofCLE project, coming in to take free pictures of family, friends and cosplayers in costume.


“We have a lot of fun on this day, and it’s great to see customers interact with each other in costume,” says owner John Dudas. “A kid really lives up to his Batman costume when he sees the Joker walk in the door.”
