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. Fans can find their favorites at Barnes and Noble or perhaps the Maple Grove Library. For a little drive to Minnetonka, Beyond Shinders not only has new comics, but vintage as well.
National Comic Book day is also a good precursor for the famous New York Comic Con. This year, it will be held during Oct. 11-14 at the Jacob Javits Center, where heroes and villains will walk the streets of Gotham.
Looking more local? The Midwest Comic Book Association will be hosting FallCon Saturday, Oct. 6 in the Education Building on the Minnesota State Fairgrounds in St. Paul.
