Halloween Comic Fest . . . I've never been part of one of these just heard the rumors that it existed. Well on Free Comic Book Day 2013 I got a nice stack of these little Mini-Comics.

I love Johnny Boo (and now Harold) the comics are simplified and silly and full of humor for kids . . . the kind of comics I like to make myself.

 The Johnny Boo section of the comic is a full color Halloween story about a little ghost and his silly friends and well ice cream. Very simple story that will put a smile on your face and give you a feeling of what reading comic books as a kid was all about.

Harold is a black, white and green comic about vampires that is also very simple in art, lettering, and color. In this tale Harold forgets about Halloween and is then run through a series of tricks by several talking bats before finally receiving his treat. . . cute and funny stuff.

You can usually find Johnny Boo in the Top Shelf Free Comic Book Day comics and you should take a chance on the regular issues if you have kids or are a kid at heart.

Thanks for reading,
Kevin P. Johnson
