All of those who believe in Harvey Dent and Gotham City—rejoice!
Sept. 25 is National Comic Book Day. It's an occasion for people of all ages to enjoy comic books—and for diheard fans of the genre to reflect on all the years since the first-ever comic book superhero made his debut 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. Coming just a day before Yom Kippur on Wednesday—a Los Angeles Unified School District holiday—it's the perfect time for Eagle Rock youngsters to spend their afterschool hours browsing comic books at the Eagle Rock Library and/or popping in at two neighborhood stores that sell a variety of comics: Comics vs. Toys, located at 1613 Colorado Blvd. and READ Books on 4972 Eagle Rock Blvd.
National Comic Book Day 2012 is also a precursor to the famous New York Comic Con. This year, the New York Comic Con will be held October 11-14 at the Jacob Javits Center, where heroes and villains will walk the streets of Gotham.
