Holy Smokes, Batman—It's National Comic Book Day 2012!

Whether you love Spider-Man, 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. Simsbury Cards and Comics (498 Salmon Brook Street, Granby, CT) and Free Lunch Studios (518 Salmon Brook Street, Granby, CT) are two local businesses offering comic books.

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.

From Batman to Archie and the gang, today celebrates everyone’s favorite comic characters.
