NEW YORK – Marvel versus D.C.? Wednesday, it doesn’t matter what side you’re on because it is National Comic Book Day.

The day is dedicated to celebrating everything we love about comics: the art, artists and stories.

According to the National Day Calendar, comic books were first popularized in the United States then quickly spread around the world.

While most of us think super heroes and comics go hand in hand, the first popular comic books were actually collections of comics like the ones seen in newspapers.

Despite their name, comic books are not always humorous. They feature stories in all genres.

The day is not to be confused with Free Comic Book Day which is Saturday, May 2.
