Following on the heels of the very successful celebration of Action Comics #1000, DC is planning to celebrate the Dark Knight’s 80th year with a year-long event including the release of Detective Comics #1000!
As a fan of Batman, I have to say that I’m really looking forward to it!
It was only a couple of weekends ago that Batman Day was held for 2016. That seems to be turning into a successful yearly event at local comics shops! Coming at the end of October will be Halloween ComicFest, the fall’s version of Free Comic Book Day. It will be held on the last Saturday of the month, the 29th. There will be free comics and other treats galore at participating locations!
I had a great Batman Day on Wednesday, and I hope you did, too! The store I was at had a lot of people dressed in Bat-clothing, including a young Batgirl in black and yellow! DC did a smart thing by bringing together the celebration of Batman’s 75th anniversary as well as the conclusion to “Zero Year” on the same day. Batman #33 was a fitting conclusion to this re-imagination of the Dark Knight’s origin, in my opinion.
