It’s Batman’s 75 Anniversary, and between his upcoming adventures on the big screen (in the now filming Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice), small screen (as a young boy in this fall’s Gotham), video game consoles (in Batman: Arkham Knight and LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham), animation (Batman: Assault on Arkham) and multiple ongoing comic books (including his very first weekly, Batman Eternal), it’s going to be a big couple of years for the Dark Knight. But that’s okay, he’s used to it.
Over twenty hot artists from DC Comics, the tattoo art scene, the graffiti world, and the edge of cool have all been given the ultimate blank slate—a white latex reproduction of Batman’s famous cowl and cape. Each will bring his or her own unique sensibility to decorate this piece however they see fit in Cape/Cowl/Create, a remarkable art exhibit coming to San Diego Comic-Con.
As part of their ongoing celebration of Batman’s 75th anniversary, DC Entertainment (DCE) announced today that 750 Batman titles will be made available for digital download for $.99 each. For one week only beginning on July 22, fans can become immersed in the adventures of the world’s most popular Super Hero.
If you and your kids love Batman, we've found your dream tour!
Why should the adults have all the fun? While here at DCComics.com, we tend to think of characters like Kal-El, Bruce Wayne, Diana of Themyscira and Hal Jordan as ageless, they’re clearly well over the legal drinking age. And that’s fine. It allows us to believably present Bruce Wayne as a brilliant entrepreneur and philanthropist overseeing a multi-billion dollar company when he’s not fighting crime, or Hal Jordan as a former test pilot who would be a logical candidate for a Green Lantern ring. There’s a level of drama that’s only possible when our characters are adults.
