National Comic Book Day Inspires Drive to Help Hurricane Victims

Posted on by & filed under Events.

National Comic Book Day was Monday, September 25th, but when you love comics and superheroes as much as we do, it can feel like every day should celebrate comics! The first comic books were created in the 1800s and became popular in the United States in the 1930s. What we know today as Marvel started in 1939 and it’s been 78 years of our favorite superheroes, including Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Captain America, Spiderman, and Ant-Man. We’ve turned this one-day comic celebration into a week-long drive to benefit those affected by Hurricane Harvey in Houston. Do you live near Las Vegas and love comic books? Keep reading – you won’t want to miss this great opportunity!

Marvel Avenger’s STATION is on a special mission to collect as many comic and reading books as possible from the local community, starting Monday, September 25th and running through Friday, September 29th. All books will be donated to the Houston Independent School District to help replace damaged booked in schools and libraries that were affected during Hurricane Harvey. Those who make a donation will receive $10 off their admission into Marvel Avenger’s STATION. It is a great way to help recycle your old comic books and learn more about the world of Marvel Avengers!

If you’ve never been the Marvel Avenger’s STATION, or the Scientific Training And Tactical Intelligence Operative Network, it is an interactive exhibit located in Treasure Island where you get to train to be the next Avenger! The exhibit features real paraphernalia from the movies, including all of Iron Man’s suits, Captain America’s motorcycle, and even an opportunity to see if you can lift Thor’s hammer! Tickets can be purchased online here or in the store.
