When I was a kid growing up, I lived in a small town. There were no comic shops. My exposure to comics came from where they were sold, mostly at the local grocery stores. We're seeing a resurgence of interest in comics, or at least comic characters, thanks to the movie blockbusters of the recent years. Everybody has a favorite -- some were X-men fans, Spider-Man, Fantastic Four, Incredible Hulk, Batman, etc.

Now, myself, I mostly went for the comics that no one else, at least that I knew, seemed to read. My all time favorite...Donald Duck, and in particular, Uncle Scrooge. Little did I know that worldwide, these comics outsell all the DC & Marvel Universe comics put together.

This coming Halloween morning, Halloween ComicFest 2015 will be giving away at participating comic stores many free comics to those whom stop by. http://www.halloweencomicfest.com/Home/1/1/78/1141?articleID=164806

Time and time again, I see the subject of "how old is too old to trick or treat?" In an amusing take on this, I'm looking forward to the free comic to see how this turns out in this year's offering of "Donald Duck's Halloween Scream". You can read the first pages of the story, though not the end, online in the preview....

We've been buying the little Halloween comic-fest mini-comics to hand out in addition to candy for the last couple years. Kids seem either thrilled or completely non-plussed. I wasn't thrilled with the mini-comic selection this year but that Donald Duck comic looks great though. (I think that's a full-sizer).

I remember as a kid getting really competitive about trick-or-treating. Wasn't so much about wanting tons to eat - just more about beating the other kids.
