Live Stream: Superheroes to save Elyria today

ELYRIA — Comic books reign supreme today.

Grab your cape — if you have one — and head to Ely Square.

Keith’s Comics, 394 Broad St., will celebrate National Free Comic Book Day with — drum roll, please — a distribution of free comic books. The store is open 11:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m.

Next, a virtual comic book event will bring residents inside the adventure. The event kicks off at 12:30 p.m. in Ely Square with the Ohio National Guard and local leaders celebrating a group of “super” kids.

Mayor Holly Brinda will issue a proclamation honoring the young heroes.

After opening ceremonies, the group of pre-selected children will visit several area businesses to take part in live-action skits, where they will team with superheroes to save the day. Each skit will last 15 to 20 minutes, starting at The Chronicle-Telegram, which will play the part of the Elyria Planet for the event.

From there, the children will head to Fifth Third Bank, Ely Square, Keith’s Comics, Lorain County Justice Center and the old Lorain County Courthouse. Ely Square will be the site of the grand finale.

The Elyria Public Library will showcase its comic book-themed bookmobile. Costumed superheroes will roam the square. Participants may receive free drawings, grab bags and prizes.

Donna’s Diner will serve super meals.

    Best get the MRAP out, the natives are frequently restless. Wouldn’t want them ruining the fun.

    Will The Mayor don a spandex outfit?.

    just saw sis delish dressed wrapped up in ball of klenex and golfingirl attached to her dressed what looked like a string. What costume are you two wearing? And why is there ketchup all over you sis?

    • Simon Jester

      Impressively juvenile and pathetic.

      Which troll are you? There’s one a$$clown floating around here under about 6 different pseudonyms. Is this one your little superhero identity?

  • Sis Delish

    Looks like the democratic administration for the City of Elyria is preparing its youth for military vehicles in the streets… incredible.

    As for newcomer damo99, sorry, you’re no Super Hero, at best, you are a QuizNo.

    • Simon Jester

      Hell, I was joking. Looks like the guard showed up with a 5 ton..

  • damo99

    Better a quizno than a rag muffin
