Saturday, November 19 is Local Comic Book Store Day around the country.
We thought we would give you a round up of the nine comic book stores in Metro Detroit that will be participating in the event.
Each store has a different plan for how they will be celebrating. There will be 28 items being released on Saturday. Not every store will get the same items, so if you’re looking for something specific I suggest checking out each store.
