Comic Quest is celebrating Superman’s birthday today by handing out cupcakes and discounting Superman merchandise.
According to the store, DC Comics pegs Superman’s official birthday as Feb. 29: Born on Krypton, baby Kal-El was born this day. Kyrpton’s calendar is slightly different, with 18 Kryptonian years for every 25 years on Earth.
Comic Quest is celebrating the “monumental event” by giving a 25 percent discount on Superman items, handing out cupcakes decorated with Superman’s logo, dressing up a mannequin as Superman and diplaying a banner in front of the store wishing Superman a happy birthday.
Since the superhero’s birthday coincides with a leap day, the store is also giving a 10 percent discount for all Comic Quest items to anyone who shows up and “leaps like Superman.” [See the photo to the right for an example.]
Hours for the store, which is open every day in Suite 100 at 23811 Bridger, are 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.
