Comic Cave anniversary & trick or treat!

4 years ago in St. Johns we held our soft opening during the neighborhood business trick-or-treat! Met a bunch of great folks who braved the rain, signed up some subscribers, gave out free Halloween mini-comics to the kiddoes. Now it’s time to do it again! I’ve timed it to coincide with the Kenton Business Trick-or-Treat event up & down Denver from 5-7. Free comics for the kiddoes and I’ll probably have my usual grownup snacks & drinks as well 🙂
