Saturday is a special day for comic book lovers everywhere as it is "Free Comic Book Day".

People young and old were treated to free comics at shops all around the country.

More than 50 select titles were available for free at most locations.

Grand Cities Games in Grand Forks was full of enthusiasts who were taking part in the comic book event.

But employees say the day isn't just for dedicated fan boys; although it's hardly an old time hobby.

Dustin Hiott/Grand Cities Games: "They're not just a nerd thing I guess. They're more main stream. A lot more people are into them than they used to ever be before."

Free comic book day started back in 2002; it is held the first Saturday in May each year.
