Tag: BATMAN DAY
It’s safe to say the first annual Batman Day was a success for Barnes and Noble Bookstore at Parks Mall in Arlington, TX. Crowds of children and their parents were in attendance to celebrate the anniversary of the Dark Knight’s 75th birthday. Although the super hero’s first appearance was in the May 1939 issue of Detective Comics, its publisher DC decided to postpone the big celebration until July 23rd.
Batman is pretty spry for a 75-year-old super hero. It’s easy to explain away Superman staying so fit and young over three quarters of a century: he’s an indestructible alien powered by our sun. Bruce Wayne and his alter ego are perfect examples for the phrase, “You’re only as old as you think you are.” As far as he’s concerned, he’s still the same guy who pulled on the cape and cowl back in June of 1939 to solve “The Case of the Crime Syndicate.”
