Slackers will be participating in Halloween ComicFest this year! This is a nationwide event for comic book stores, held October 26th – 27th. Similar to Free Comic Book Day, each store (except the Jefferson City and St. Charles locations – sorry!) will have a selection of free comics / mini-comics for our awesome, comic-loving customers!*

We’ll also have a Buy 2 Get 1 Free** special on all back issue comics, $0.99 comics, and trade paperbacks Saturday and Sunday!

We have another treat for you in Alton on Saturday! We’ll be hosting the artists who created Gargoyle By Moonlight, the 36-page mini graphic novel from Moonrise Comics! They’ll be at the Alton Slackers from 6:00PM to 8:00 PM on the 26th.

From their website:

Figure out your destiny. Defeat a demigod. And do it all before sunrise. That’s the challenge facing Gary Doyle tonight.

Afflicted by a curse that turns him into a stone gargoyle every night, Gary Doyle has been passing the time punching out creepy crawly underworld demons and trying to figure out how to undo the curse. When a raging demigod bent on annihilation begins rampaging through the city, Doyle, coached by the mysterious gypsy, Drina, and assisted by the equally enchanting archaeologist, Chloe Anders, must decide whether he’s a hero or the monster the world sees him as.

And don’t forget, you can pick up the sweet Afterlife With Archie Slackers variant while you’re here!

* Stores may not have all titles. Selection varies by location.

** The lesser of the three items is free. Offer valid October 26th-27th.
