Happy Batman Day!

Batman is 75 years old. Looks pretty good for an old man, huh?

For all of you fellow Batman geeks, today is a fun one: in commemoration of the release of Detective Comics #27 in 1939, DC Comics has declared July 23, 2014 Batman Day. Get out your copies of all the Batman movies (including Batman and Robin if you’re truly hardcore/hate yourself), plug in the Arkham games, and have some fun.

But what else is in store for Batman Day? DC has a whole lot planned:

In celebration of Batman’s 75th anniversary, DC Entertainment is partnering with thousands of comic book retailers and bookstores across the nation to celebrate “Batman Day” on Wednesday, July 23. As part of the festivities, fans who visit participating retailers receive a free, special edition of DETECTIVE COMICS #27, featuring a reimagining of Batman’s 1939 comic book debut, designed by Chip Kidd with a script by The New York Times #1 bestselling author Brad Meltzer.

In addition to the comic book, DC Entertainment is providing retailers access to an assortment of other collectibles to help in the celebration of “Batman Day” including a Batman 75th anniversary cape, bookmarks featuring essential Batman graphic novels and four Batman masks designed by comic book artist Ryan Sook spotlighting a variety of the character’s iconic looks from his 75-year history.


Plus, if you want to relive history, there will be a digital version of the very first appearance of the Dark Knight available at and all tablets and eReaders.

Let’s all celebrate by punching guys dressed like clowns.

I know a lot of comic stores and hobby shops in the area are going to be celebrating, so let me know if you work at/know of/hang out at a store that’s doing something and I’ll add them to this list:

October County Comics, LLC
246 Main St
Ste 5 Cherry Hill Center
New Paltz, NY 12561
