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.

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. 

In New Trier Township, The Comix Gallery, 405 Linden Ave., Wilmette, bills itself as a comic-book lover's dream, specializing in Marvel and DC Comics, along with posters, t-shirts and collectible action figures.

Graphic novels can be found at Winnetka's The Book Stall, 811 Elm St., Winnetka, and Books on Vernon, 664 Vernon Ave., Glencoe. 

Winnetka-Northfield Public Library District also offers a wide collection of comic books. 

National Comic Book day is also a good precursor for the famous New York Comic Con. This year, it will be held during Oct. 11-14 at the Jacob Javits Center, where heroes and villains will walk the streets of Gotham.

From Batman to Archie and the gang, be sure to celebrate everyone’s favorite comic characters.

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