Give Comic Books to Kids for Halloween

Squashua writes "For the last few years, I've given out comic books to kids for Halloween instead of candy. It's been a hit (mostly, except for some eight-year-old prima-donna girls), and I'm trying to convince others to also join in the fun. So this year, I've started a movement, Comics4Halloween, to get the word out. You can print out a flyer with the top ten reasons for giving comics (they're sugar free!), and bring it to your local comic store. There are also links to articles for tips on obtaining the comics (buy from the quarter bin; negotiate a discount from the retailer for buying in bulk; offer to advertise your local shop when you hand out the books; use your judgment in selecting books so you don't end up like Gordon Lee, etc.).

Please help spread the word. I have no agenda other than to get comic books into the hands of kids for Halloween."
