WARREN, Ohio (WKBN) – All American Cards and Comics celebrated Free Comic Book Day at both of its locations on Saturday.
Owner Greg Bartholomew says nearly 100 people were in line waiting to get inside the store in Warren.
The annual promotional day has been around for 18 years. It’s an effort by the industry to bring new readers into independent comic book stores.
“If somebody isn’t into the comic book hobby and wanted to check something out, then they could come in, pick up a few free comic books, check out what the store is like and, you know, see all the people,” Bartholomew says.
He says more and more people come out for the promotion every year.
