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!

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. For Loganville-Grayson Patch Blogger Jason Brooks, that would be Batman and Spider-Man.

"Batman because of his detective skills and gear, and Spider-Man because he was a smart-aleck nerd who got every nerd's wish fulfillment - super powers and a smoking hot wife," Brooks said, adding, "I'm still working on the super powers, but the smoking hot wife I got."

For blogger, Kristopher Parker, that would be Captain America.

"He doesn't have the flashy super hero attributes of the other super heroes, he just has extremely strong work ethic, character, and a desire to get the job done," Parker said. "He's willing to risk much to do the right thing."

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.

So who is your favorite comic book character?
