Something you should know about me... I LOVE BATMAN. My brother and I have ALWAYS loved Batman... and I always will! We played with Batman cars, toys, video games as kids, had Batman sheets and blankets, cups/plates, toothbrushes, you name it... and we of course went to midnight showings of The Dark Knight/The Dark Knight Rises. 

When my brother "graduated" from speech therapy when he was 5, we had a graduation party for him, and guess who showed up? Batman. :) 

So... HAPPY BATMAN DAY to all fans! Here's how DC Comics is celebrating the 75th anniversary of Batman: 

Batman is celebrating his 75th anniversary this year, and to mark the occasion, comic shops, bookstores and libraries by the hundreds will be observing “Batman Day,” a full day devoted to all things Dark Knight! On Wednesday, July 23, participating comic shops and bookstores will give away free copies of DETECTIVE COMICS #27 SPECIAL EDITION, an updated take on the comic that first introduced Batman to the world. This extra-sized issue features stories by Brad Meltzer, Scott Snyder, Bryan Hitch and Sean Murphy, as well as Batman’s first adventure, Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s “The Case of the Chemical Syndicate,” reprinted in full. In addition, it includes a sneak peek at Meltzer and Chip Kidd’s beautiful reimagining of the original Detective Comics #27. Then on Saturday, July 26, libraries nationwide will get in on the fun with Batman-themed activities and great giveaways, including the free Detective Comics #27 Special Edition.

Even better, the comic is just the beginning! Look for Batman bookmarks, bags, a Batman 75thanniversary cape, and four specially produced Batman masks based on different eras of the Dark Knight’s history. SOURCE
