Gadzooks, Batman—It's National Comic Book Day!

Whether you love Spiderman, X-men or Batman, be sure to geek out with your favorite comics on this 2012 holiday.

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.

It's also good timing to psych up for Long Beach's upcoming ComicCon at the Long Beach Convention Center November 3 and 4th. The "Long Beach Horror & Comic Con" is a more manageable sized gathering of artists who sell their work, who perform in comic book characters, writers who will actually sit with you and discuss their work, and aisles of merchandise one can buy.

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.
