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.

Today 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. If you're into nostalgia, get a history book on comics at the North Canton Public Library.

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.

I read a couple volumes of Brian K. Vaughan's "Y: The Last Man" this year (my first comic book!) and have "Ex Machina" and "Watchmen" on my list for this fall. I'd love to know what comic books other Patch readers are reading!
