Instead of rotting your children’s teeth (or your own) with candy on Halloween, how about giving them FREE comics?

Yes, just like Free Comic Book Day in May, the Halloween Comicfest is another occasion for readers to sample various comic series at the low, low price of FREE (have I mentioned FREE enough?). This year’s books include the likes of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Spider-Man, Batman, Adventure Time, and many other spooky heroes and baddies.

Along with the selection of free books, Pulp will be running a special sale that’s so terrifyingly unbelievable, you may pee your pants!

And while you’re at it, you may want to start working on a costume!

Before we get deep into the mass of new games for this week, we want to give a brief shout out to tomorrow’s Free RPG Day.

Pulp will be hosting a number of games throughout the day featuring various systems, including Pathfinder, Dungeons & Dragons, and Shadowrun. If you’re curious about the schedule, here it is…

10am Shadowrun (Blade Runner meets Lord of the Rings)
11am Pathfinder
1pm Pathfinder
2pm D&D (4e)
And there may be a few pick up games throughout the day.

Of course, as the title suggests, there will also be some free materials for various game systems being handed out along with sales on RPG related merchandise.

Okay, now to the real reason we’ve called you all together. We’re putting together a job, see, and we need the right, specialized people to pull it off.

Infiltration, the new stand-alone card game based off Fantasy Flight‘s Android board game, takes that famous heist movie premise and transports it to the far, far future. Two to six players control futuristic noir thieves attempting to steal valuable secrets from a corporate entity. But, as is the case with these situations, the further you descend into the heist, the more difficult it becomes to escape.

Taking a different kind of journey down the rabbit hole is the newest expansion for Dixit, Dixit Journey. Offering a wide variety of new illustrative cards (by a new artist, none the less), Journey can be played as either a stand alone game or a companion expansion to the base game.

Fortress America has received a make over thanks to Fantasy Flight. The new edition of the classic game involves the same storyline and mechanics (two to six players controlling America or invading countries in a vicious struggle for control of the continent), but with a grimy, gritty redux accompanied by 300 detailed miniatures and a revised rulebook.

One for the kids now. Donkey, It’s a Kick is a mad cap family friendly game where everyone competing to complete various random tasks. The trick is these tasks never stay the same for too long. Even more complicated, after players are eliminated from the game they continue to play as donkeys, this time keeping to only one goal: eliminate all other players. Add a little Wild Turkey to the mix and you might have yourself a dang good party game, too.
