Return of the 'Guys'
It’s that time of year again when my “Guys” – life size figures of superheroes and cartoon characters (including a villain this year, the Joker) – visit Porter Library to join in the fun on Comic Book Day next month.
DJ Nagaj and Duane Gibson, from Porter, have them there, ready to go on display the first week in May. Also new this year is Elmo.
