With November approaching fast, it’s time for Free Comic Book Day’s lesser-known cousin: Halloween Comicfest.

This Saturday, you can pick up free comics from your local store, and take part in a costume contest with prizes like a $500 comic store shopping spree.

The free comics are a mixed bag of regular titles like Marvel‘s new Darth Vader spinoff Doctor Aphra, and Halloween comics like Afterlife with Archie, the zombie-themed Archie Comics alternate timeline.

You can check out a full list of the free comics here, including issues from IDW, Dark Horse, and Marvel.
