Comic book stores across the country are giving away free comic books. Millions of comic books from top publishers have been sent to about 2,000 stores, including several in Colorado.
It is a way for the industry to get new readers and celebrate their art.
"People think all comic books - they're all kid stuff and Richie Rich. That's like saying all movies are westerns, all novels are romance novels. It's a format and any kind of story can be told in that format," said Mike Coco, the manager of Bargain Comics.
