Today, thousands of comic shops and bookstores worldwide are celebrating Batman Day. They’re hosting parties, giving away free Batman comics and in some locations, handing out some awesome Batman masks. Based on four distinct Dark Knight-eras, these masks are fun and perfect for a little cell phone photography. And since Batman has shown he’s not above taking an occasional selfie, we’re putting a call out for some BatSelfies!
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.
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.

This July, select DC Comics titles will receive Batman 75 variant covers by some of the most notable artists in the business.
Unless you’re just now waking up from a two week nap (in which case don’t tell us, you’re just going to make everyone else jealous), you know that this year marks the 75th Anniversary of Batman.
We’re celebrating Batman all month long here on DCComics.com, and what better way to do that than with an awesome, all-Batman episode of DC All Access?! First, we speak to animation legend Bruce Timm about "Strange Days," the spectacularly retro short he's assembled in honor of Batman's 75th Anniversary.
