Rogers Park’s own Third Coast Comics is getting in the Halloween Spirit once again, offering free comics for trick-or-treaters.
The shop, located at 6443 N. Sheridan, is participating in Halloween Comic Fest this Saturday, Oct. 27, from 12-4 p.m.
Owner Terry Gant said this is the sixth year his store has participated.
“Kids are going to be trick-or-treating, getting candy anyways so it’s a way to get comic books in the hands of kids that are maybe Halloween themed or a little on the spookier side,” Gant said.
There isn’t a specified age limit for the event, according to Gant.
“If you’re old enough to trick or treat, you’re probably in the right age group for the comics we’re giving away,” Gant said. “Everything we give away is pretty much going to be age-appropriate.”
Halloween Comic Fest is a national promotion, and Gant said other Chicago-area comic book shops will be participating.
