WHO NEEDS CANDY WHEN YOU CAN GIVE COMICS FOR HALLOWEEN?

It has been a habit of this geek to order Halloween mini-comics for trick-or-treaters over the past few years. The mini-comics are perfectly suited for little hands and they are nearly as cheap as candy. They come in bundles of 25 and are a much better choice than tooth-rot. I ordered several bundles last month, but if you hurry you will still have time to order yours from your local comic book shop. You can also order most of the mini-comics online at Badger Comics. Here's what I bought:

  • Betty Cooper Confidential (Archie Comics)
  • Casper/Little Lulu (Dark Horse)
  • Domo: The Manga (TokyoPop)
  • Popeye: Popeye vs. The "Ghosk" (King Features)
  • Star Wars (Dark Horse)
I have left0vers from previous years and I plan on giving these out to the students in the HALL OF HEROES comic book club at school. Incidentally, the comics make for good classroom rewards and can also be part of a classroom economy.
