Comics: DC Announces Batman Day 2015

“I am vengeance! I am the night! I am…” not even going to bother finishing this quote, because you know it’s Batman! The caped crusader has been captivating comic readers, movie watchers, and TV viewers for ages, and each year it’s celebrated with DC’s Batman Day.

An announcement on DC Comic’s website declares: “‘Batman Day’ is back by popular demand and will take place on Saturday, September 26, 2015, kicking off what has become an annual event honoring one of the most popular and iconic Super Heroes and celebrating all things Batman from comics to video games and more. Fans everywhere are invited to partake in festivities with thousands of comic book shops, bookstores, schools, libraries and other retail partners participating in the bat-centric event.”

Select comic stores, libraries, and bookstores will be hosting meet-and-greet sessions with artists and writers from DC Comics, including Scott Snyder, Jim Lee, and Grant Morrison. Of course, they can’t be in multiple places at once, so check with your local shops to see if they’ll be bringing in any guests.

Additionally, stores will be given “Batman Day” event kits, including activities, trivia, and games, which can be downloaded straight from the website.

So what makes Batman so popular? He’s a hero that’s withstood the test of time and several different adaptations. Batman is a single man, with no super powers except for ridiculous amounts of money and a body and mind trained to their fullest potential, but represents the difference that an individual can make.

While Batman has been represented in different ways in different adaptations and under the pen of different writers, that one core aspect of him remains the same. Even when the mantle of Batman is worn by another (most recently Commissioner Gordon), we all know and love Batman.

Fun fact: I’ve actually been called a “Batman apologist” for pointing out that as Bruce Wayne, he donates a considerable amount of his wealth to making Gotham City a safer place via improved infrastructure, better services for the mentally ill, better education for low-income areas, cleaning up the neighborhoods, etc, to someone who was complaining that he spends all his time and money dressing up and beating up damaged criminals. Personally, I see nothing to apologize for.
