Spooky Free Comic Book Day

  • Your Local Vault of Midnight (map)

Everyone knows that Free Comic Book Day is the best. But have you ever wished that Free Comic Book Day were just a tiny bit...spookier? On Saturday, October 27 help us ring in our favorite holiday with frightfully free comics, ghoulish costumes, and complimentary tricks/treats.

Free Comics!

Check out the slew of spine-chilling titles available, we've got something for everyone of every age.


Costume Contest!

Enter our legendary costume contest for the chance to win fame and notoriety in addition to these more tangible prizes:


  • 1st Place - 3 Month MonthBook Subscription

  • 2nd Place - October's Book of the Month & Vault T-Shirt

  • 3rd Place - Vault of Midnight T-Shirt


  • Three chances to win a SPOOKY All Ages book!


  • That's right. This year we'll be hosting a Dogs of Midnight costume contest, and there will be a prize for the most creative canine cosplay! (Please be mindful of your dog's comfort levels and willingness to participate. Vault of Midnight does not condone canine costuming without consent!)

Highly-trained Daily Bugle photographers will be on hand at each Vault of Midnight location to take your photo and sign you up for the contest!
