DC to Celebrate Batman Day with Free Re-Written Copy of Detective Comics #27

As if every day isn't already Batman Day at DC Comics.

DC Comics has announced that they will be celebrating Batman's 75th anniversary with "Batman Day", which will take place on July 23rd.  To mark the occasion, DC is distributing free copies of Detective Comics #27, which will feature a re-worked version of Batman's first appearance with a script by Brad Meltzer and artwork by Chip Kidd.   DC did not specify if this script by Brad Meltzer was the same script previously illustrated by Bryan Hitch in the Detective Comics #27 released by DC Comics earlier this month.  

The comic will be available for free both at traditional retailers and online via various online retail outlets, including DC's website.  

In addition, DC will also be distributing "Batman 75th Anniversary capes" and masks inspired by popular incarnations of Batman.  DC will also be partnering with Random House to celebrate Batman day at a number of libraries on Saturday, July 26th.  

I'm not going to complain about DC giving out free stuff, although I certainly hope that the company takes time to recognize Bill Finger's contributions to Batman.  They won't, but a man can dream, can't he?

About the Author - Christian

Christian is the exasperated Abbott to the Outhouse's Costello. When he's not yelling at the Newsroom for upsetting readers or complaining to his wife about why the Internet is stupid, he sits in his dingy business office trying to find new ways to make the site earn money. Christian is also the only person in history stupid enough to moderate two comic book forums at once.
