On Saturday, comic book fans came from far and wide to attend the third year of the Pikeville Comic and Toy Convention, which allowed those in attendance to meet some of their comic idols, as well as participate in other activities.

“We were very pleased with the turnout,” said AWA Senior Director of Sales and Marketing Josh Kessler. “We’re still working to find the final number so we don’t have those yet, but the fans came out in full support.”
