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. Locally, however, the area has been in a state of comic book flux since the death of Buried Under Comics Owner Brian Kozicki last month. The popular West Middle Turnpike, Manchester store has been shuttered since Kozicki's death, with no one sure when or if the store will re-open.
On Monday, a sign was attached to the front door of Buried Under Comics that read "COMICS WILL BE AVAILABLE AGAIN HERE SOON," although numerous messages sent to the store's Facebook page asking about the status of the store have gone unreturned in recent weeks.
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.
