Halloween Comic Fest at Alter Ego Comics

Cedar Rapids is a great place for Halloween events. Alter Ego Comics is a well-known comic shop near Cedar Rapids. This local comic book specialty shop in Iowa is a great destination for the latest Halloween products and merchandise. They sell comics, graphic novels, and other Halloween merchandises. They offer discount sale for comic books all through the year. Being around Cedar Rapids, I am a frequent visitor to this local shop.

Kids in this area look forward to the month of November each year, as Alter Ego Comics have their annual Toys for Tots event. The center usually gets a great collection of toys. Each year, Toys for Tots serves over 3,500 children and nearly 1,800 local families to help them have a merry holiday season.

During Halloween, the comic store has a Halloween contest for adults and kids. Everyone who visits the comic store in Halloween costume will get a special freebie. They also will be entered to win some wonderful prizes. Grownups who come in Halloween costume will receive a free DC Futures End comic book. Additionally they offer a mind-blowing Spider-Man print for the adult contestants. Youngsters in costume get a very special treat made by Forever Chocolate in Marion and will be entered into a contest to win a prize package worth over $50! The event is quite popular in the neighborhood and the store is decorated in Halloween theme through end of Halloween weekend.

This Halloween comic event has been a tradition before Halloween at the Alter Ego comic shop. During this event, all you need to do is to walk into the comic shop and get a FREE Halloween Comic Fest comic.

Event Timings: October 29, 2014 – November 1, 2014 at 5:00 pm.

They are located at 331 7th Avenue Marion, Iowa 52302.
