It’s a bird! It’s a plane! No, it’s…National Comic Book Day soaring into a community near you this September 25. The holiday celebrates one of America’s most famous literary exports —the comic book. These publications —as we know them today —first originated in the United States in the 1930s. While they were first typically humorous in nature, it didn’t take long for authors to apply the comic style to all genres of storytelling. Today, comic books are celebrated by trading, collecting, attending conventions, online discussions and more. The genre has grown to include full-length novels, or graphic novels, and inspired countless movie adaptations. How will you celebrate?
