Superhero Saturday at local museum

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a comic book exhibit in Abingdon.

The William King Museum celebrated super-hero Saturday.

The community celebration included a cookout, a blood drive and a visit from comic book legal defense, Charles Brownstein.

Brownstein traveled to Abingdon from New York and spoke to the crowd today about the history of censorship in comics.

Museum coordinators say they want the museum to become a community gathering place.

"It's been a chance for the community to really come together and bond over there shared love of comics and comic creators. And i think that the creators have enjoyed it as well being able to come out and mingle with people," says Cureator of Museum Programming, Callie Hietala.

The museum plans to replace the comic exhibit with a civil war exhibit within the next few weeks.
