(Victorville) —Linebreakers, the High Desert’s premier comic book and game store in historic downtown Victorville, will be giving away free comic books and holding a Halloween event for all to attend with Halloween ComicFest on October 26th.
Halloween ComicFest (HCF) is the comic book industry’s premier fall event – a single day when participating comic book specialty shops across North America and around the world give away specially published comic books absolutely free. It is the perfect way to experience comic shops as destinations for Halloween and horror-themed comic books, collectibles, and more. It is a fall version of the extremely popular Free Comic Book Day, which takes place every first Saturday in May.
Publishers with books available for free include DC Comics, Marvel Comics, Dark Horse Comics, IDW Publishing, BOOM! Studios, Dynamite Entertainment, and Image Comics, along with a slew of independent publishers. Comics will be available on a first-come, first-served basis, but there is more fun in store for Linebreaker’s event.
“We are going to have games, candy, costume contests, artists in the comic book industry, it is going to be an extremely fun day for the community,” said David McKean, Owner of Linebreakers. “We invite everyone, the whole family, to come out and enjoy Halloween a little bit early with us!”
The day will kick-off at 10 a.m., with a full schedule to be released soon. Linebreakers held a hugely successful Free Comic Book Day in May, with over 400 fans visiting the shop throughout the day. Look for announcements on artists, cosplayers, costume contest prizes, and more as the date draws near.
The largest comic book shop in the High Desert, Linebreakers is also the longest-running game store in the community and has been a mainstay in downtown Victorville for years, carrying a variety of products ranging from comic books, graphic novels, action figures, tabletop gaming, and more. At Linebreakers, you can learn a new hobby, create a pull list for your monthly comic book subscriptions, find the perfect pop culture gift and more.
Linebreakers is located at 15491 7th Street in Victorville. For more information, call (760) 951-8406 or visit the store online at www.linebreakers.club.
