A FANtastic Moment...

A FANtastic Moment...

By Tim Beedle Monday, March 4th, 2013

Superman has defeated villains like Lex Luthor and Brainiac, survived his home planet’s destruction and kept ours safe from harm for over eighty years. Batman has defeated armies of undead assassins, kept some of the most destructive criminals in check and fought otherworldly threats alongside the Justice League—and he does all this without super powers.

And yet, neither of them could have achieved their most recent accomplishments on their own. They needed each and every one of you.

This week, Batman passed 8 million likes on his official Facebook page. Superman passed 4 million. And DC Comics hit the 1 million mark.

We wanted to celebrate these great accomplishments by celebrating the people who made them possible—the fans. Today, the cover photo on all three Facebook pages has been updated with new art commemorating the milestone and thanking the fans for making it possible.

But that’s just the start. Throughout this week and beyond, keep an eye out for this logo:



We’ll be using it to flag special “FANtastic Moments” on all three Facebook pages and right here on Some of these will be posts, photo galleries, articles and other great content driven by fans. Some will be giveaways and cool stuff that we’ve put together for our fans as a thank you for helping us hit these milestones.

In fact, you can find your very first FANtastic Moment right here! In honor of Batman reaching 8 million, we’re offering a free digital download of Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo’s BATMAN #1 for the next 24 hours.
