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 Woodland Hills, visit the Flip Side at 19950 Ventura Blvd. It's main focus is comic books, buth the store also has collectible toys and comic book memorabilia, movies and music. There is also PittSStop Comic at 6016 Fallbrook Ave., Suite 102 in Woodland Hills, which also has memorabilia in addition to comic books. And, nearby, is Collector's Paradise in Winnetka at 7131 Winnetka Ave.
National Comic Book day is also a good precursor for the Alternative Press Expo in San Francisco. Hosted by the people who bring you Comic-Con, APE is one of the "must-attend comics events of the year" (at least, according to its website), and it will be held Oct. 13-14, when heroes and villains will walk the Concourse Exhibition Center.
