Give Comic Books to Kids for Halloween

Postby Squashua on Fri Oct 19, 2007 2:47 pm

Alright gang, you read about it in this week's @$$hole reviews, but here's the thread:

I'm trying to get people to give comic books to kids for Halloween.

I have no other agenda, hidden, secret or otherwise.

Website for more info: http://www.comicspace.com/comics4halloween/

I just want fans to
1 - Give comic books instead of candy on Halloween.
Raid the quarter bins of your local comic store.
Negotiate a discount with your retailer for buying books in bulk with the intention to give them away for free on Halloween.

2 - Print out the flyer and give it to their local comic shop (with the reasons outlined on the website below).

3 - Tell everyone they know to also give out comic books.

4 - Spread the word! Post information about this movement to your blog.

What this does

Helps your local comic store
- new potential customers
- sales from quarter bin
- essentially free promotion

Helps kids
- no tooth decay
- promotes reading
- safe Halloween

Helps fans
- adds new future fans to the fanbase
- influences future writers / artists

- -

I get nothing from doing this; I make nothing from doing this.
I simply want people to give out comic books to their trick-or-treaters.

Just make sure to not give out copies of Eightball or Alternative Comics. :|

I was planning to throw a handful of Fruity Pebbles into everyone's trick-or-treat bag, same as every year. Maybe I can get rid of some old Richie Rich issues instead.

Fruity pebbles vs Richie Rich? That's a tough one.

That is true. I have been known to pay my bordello tab with graded copies of Richie Rich Zillionz and Archie's Pal Jughead.
