Holy Smokes, Batman—It's National Comic Book Day 2012!
Whether you love Spiderman, X-men or Batman, be sure to geek out with your favorite comics on this holiday.
To all of those who believe in Harvey Dent and Gotham City, rejoice.
September 25 is National Comic Book day. This is a day for people of all ages to enjoy, since the first-ever comic book superhero made his first appearance in 1938. While some characters have new looks, and some of their storylines have changed completely, comic enthusiasts can still share their love of their favorite characters, old and new.
This geeky holiday is a great time for comic fans to honor their superhero, heroine or villain’s best stories. At Indian Prairie Public Library in Darien, folks can not only check out comic books, but find out how much they are worth and how to become a comic artist themselves. At the Woodridge Public Library, fans can get tips on comic book collecting and learn comic book trivia, such as why Batman carries shark repellant.
National Comic Book day is also a good precursor for the famous New York Comic Con. This year, it will be held during October 11-14 at the Jacob Javits Center, where heroes and villains will walk the streets of Gotham.
