CORPUS CHRISTI - It's national comic book day and, to celebrate, Texas Toyz is offering a free comic book to all channel 6 viewers. Movies like Superman and Batman keep comic books alive but there are more TV and movie plots that come from comic books than most think. The Avengers, 300, Iron Man, and X-Men are just some of the movies created from a comic book.
With new artwork such as 3-D printing on the covers of the books, comics are showing no signs of slowing down production. Sold for an initial price of $3-$4, some books skyrocket to hundreds and thousands of dollars. According to Dean Fritsch, the most expensive comic book, Action Comics #1 which features the first appearance of Superman, is priced at $2 million.
