About National Comic Book Day

National Comic Book Day is a super cool day. Share a book with a friend today. We don’t know of anyone who doesn’t like a good comic book. As a matter of fact, many of us have a collection. Collecting never goes out of style. And, the books in our collection only gain in value over the years.
Comic books are great reading. They either tell an ongoing story, provide humor, or offer intrigue and suspense. In all the storylines, good eventually prevails over evil. So, these books always make us feel good.
