BANGOR, Maine (NEWS CENTER) -- Kid Central Festival is held on the first Saturday in May every year to coincide with Free Comic Book Day.

Kids of all ages filled Top Shelf Comics to pick up a free comic book, whether it was their first or 100th issue.

Top Shelf Comics owner Jeff Robinson started reading comics 20 years ago, and decided to turn his hobby into a business. He says he hopes kids will become as excited about comics as he is, especially now that superheroes are big at the box office.

Today won't be the last time comic books are celebrated in Bangor - the Bang Pop Comic Con is coming to the city in September.
