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.

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

To all of those who believe in Harvey Dent and Gotham City, rejoice.

Sept. 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.

Southern California is a hot bed for comic book lovers, who get many chances to celebrate their love of characters at conventions. The San Diego Comic-Con is the Mecca, but other events are held annually in Anaheim and Los Angeles, including the recently-completed Stan Lee Comikaze event at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

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

To get into the comic book spirit, you can purchase comic books at JPM Comics in Glendora.

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