Happy Batman Day! In case you’ve been living under a bat-shaped rock recently, we are letting you know that Batman Day is happening on the 15th of September. You don’t have to be a citizen of Gotham to celebrate this Cape Crusader Day. That’s right, everyone’s favorite hero, The Dark Knight, has his own day and rightfully so. Following Batman Day, DC will commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Dark Knight with a year-long celebration in 2019. The character started in Detective Comics, and that series will get its 1000th issue next year, so get ready for plenty of Batman goodness to come. From comics to television, to the silver screen, over the years Batman has proven he is the hero we not only deserve but the one we absolutely need!
If Christopher Nolan’s version of Batman is your favourite then you are missing out a big part of DC Universe. Sure the movies are great and all, but the best way to experience Batman’s countless adventures is from the comic book page. Batman proves in the world of super powered meta-humans that the ability a hero can possess is an unstoppable need to do what’s right. From the death of his parents to the countless obstacles he has encountered, he never gives up. So let’s pay respect to our cape crusader. Pow! Whizz! Bam! Batman Day returns on September 15th for the annual celebration of the Dark Knight! Join in on the fun and go bat crazy!
