Instead of candy, some stores are going to be giving children reading material this Halloween. It’s part of a Halloween ComicFest promotion, where participating retailers will offer free comics and samplers of series for visitors. Viz Media has confirmed that a Yo-Kai Watch manga sampler will among the materials distributed.
The Yo-Kai Watch manga sampler will be an original creation for Halloween ComicFest and will act as a teaser for the series written and drawn by Noriyuki Konishi. It’s inspired by the Level-5 game of the same name, and the initial images shared by Viz suggest it will show how Nathan and Whisper meet Jibanyan, the nekomata.
People can check the official Halloween ComicFest website to see if any stores near them will be participating on October 31. Yo-Kai Watch is part of Viz Media’s Perfect Square line and the first volume will release on November 3 for $9.99.
