Saturday, November 18th, 2017 – Local Comic Shop Day® AND Justice League Day? Two great days that taste great together! Local Comic Shop Day® celebrates locally owned independent comic book specialty stores, like Challengers, showcasing our unique and vital role as the primary fire-starters of pop culture. And Justice League Day because there’s a movie!
Challengers is proud to showcase local talent on this day!

DARRYL HARVEY is a native Chicagoan and graduate of Northern Illinois University. He began his writing career with poetry and dedicated himself to helping others with a career in social work. While working in social work, Darryl was inspired to write for children. This was the beginning of the Sunflower Series. The first book in the series “I Can Do Anything,” is a self-esteem builder for young readers that reviews numbers, colors, and shapes. The book was well received and inspired the follow up books "Alicia’s Big Test", "Amigo Means Friend", and "What Do You Do When A Bully Picks On You?" Darryl’s books have become so popular that they have been entered in the schools and the Chicago Public Library.
