Comic Book Geek Chic and National Comic Book Day

For those who don’t know, yesterday, September 25th, was National Comic Book Day.  With the rash of comic superheroes being brought to the big screen in recent years, it’s definitely no surprise that it’s become fashionable and chic to be a comic book geek.  Of those movies surrounding comic book heroes in the past decade we have the Spiderman franchise, the Fantastic Four series, the Incredible Hulk, the Matrix Trilogy, the X-Men movies (now numbering five), Hellboy and its sequel, the new Batman flicks, Ghost Rider, Iron Man (which also has a follow-up), Watchmen, the League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, remakes of the Punisher, and the less than stellar Daredevil.  And that’s not to include lesser well known comic book hero spin-offs (like Elektra and Catwoman) and those originals based around the more generalized super hero mythology, like Hancock and My Super Ex-Girlfriend.
