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.

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

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.

And in Cupertino, we have our very own cartoonist, Mason McCarty, who has created Wheeler Dealer Comics. One of McCarty's strips Coffee Grinds is based at Bitter+Sweet in Cupertino and offers Patch readers the opportunity to suggest story lines or become a character in the comic.

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.

TELL US: Who is your favorite comic book character? Also, upload photos of your personal comic book collection.
