Third Eye Faithful: it’s our favorite time of year again, and you know we have to just celebrate in the biggest way possible with our annual Halloween ComicFest event!
We’ve got a huge day of fun planned for you with FREE COMICS, FREE CANDY, and some super rad creator guests!
But, most importantly: It’s an excuse to show off your costume! And, you guys know that’s what Halloween is really all about, right?
So, as we start to smell the scent of Pumpkin Spice…. everything, we turn up our Misfits LPs, and we begin stockpiling this year’s supply of Monster Cereals, we’ve decided to give you the FULL scoop on what’s in store at Third Eye for Halloween ComicFest this year!


First and foremost, the best part of Halloween ComicFest: FREE comics! We are totally amped for the line-up that our pals from HCF headquarters have put together, and just like FREE COMIC BOOK DAY, these are all special editions that will NOT be reprinted again.
What’ve you got to look forward to? Well, check out the below gallery of HALLOWEEN COMIC-FEST comics that we’ve got on tap for this year’s event!


We’ll have local superstar JOHN DIMES signing copies of his hit indie
John is best known for his horror hosting as Dr. Sarcofiguy on the horror show Monster Madhouse Live – as well as his EXTENSIVE body of work in art, music and comedy.  THE WHITE CORPSE HUSTLE is a hilarious mockumentary that is sure to make even the stiffest of vampires (see what we did there) erupt with laughter
John will be signing copies of his book from 11AM – 3PM in the Annapolis store!

Speaking of local stars, we’ve got the AMAZING Orion Zangara returning for his second HCF with Third Eye!  He will be signing copies of THE STONE MAN MYSTERIES!
Orion is an illustrator and comic book artist who lives in the Washington DC area. He is a graduate of The Kubert School, an art trade school with a concentration in sequential art, founded by his grandfather, Joe Kubert. He is illustrating THE STONE MAN MYSTERIES, a trilogy graphic novel trilogy written by New York Times best-selling writer Jane Yolen and Adam Stemple for the Lerner Publishing Group.
Orion will be signing copies of his book from 11AM – 3PM in the Annapolis store!

We’ve also got the POWERHOUSE duo behind GFFs (Ghost Friends Forever), KATA KANE and MONICA GALLAGHER.  The coolest part?  Their book is one of the featured books for Halloween Comic Fest this year!
Monica Gallagher is the write and co-creator of GFFs.  She has over ten years experience making comics and illustrations with a positive, feminist spin.  She has worked for One Press, Vertigo, and Valiant, as well as self-published several of her own comics on her website,  Her latest webcomic is Assassin Roomate, updated weekly on Webtoons.

Both Kata and Monica will be signing copies of GFF and more from 11AM – 3PM in the Annapolis store!


One of the coolest things about Third Eye is that it connects us to some pretty awesome people.  One of those people being Corey Morgan – facepainter extraordinaire (and our favorite Sam Wilson cosplayer)!  You’ve seen him at our events before, and this year he was gracious enough to join us again for Halloween Comic Fest, and we are stoked!
Corey Morgan is the owner of Mr. Corey’s Face Painting. With 12 years of experience as a face and body artist, known for his realistic comic book designs, Corey has established himself as one of the best face painters in the country. Corey is also a face painting instructor with one of the largest face and body artist organizations in the world, and regularly teaches his techniques to other painters around the country as well as in Europe.
