National comic book day celebrated nationwide

STEVENS POINT Wis. (WAOW) -

National comic book day on Saturday was something for fans across the country to look forward to.

The day is the biggest event in the comic book industry as millions of free comics are given away.

One local store employee said it's a chance for people to experience all the different types of comics out there.

"They get a chance to collect something," said Lisa Pett an employee of Galaxy Comics, Games and More in Stevens Point. "People can start something if they aren't sure they want to start reading comics, they can come in grab one and take a look at it to see if it's for them, then hopefully they can buy more in the future."

Pett said comic book fans were lined up outside the store before it even opened Saturday morning.
