On July 23rd DC Comics will be releasing a variety of special promotional materials to celebrate the caped crusader.

By most accounts Batman is a pretty cool superhero. This is, in no small part because of his alter ego's ability to buy all the cool gizmos and gadgets that a justice-minded vigilante could ever want. That said, there are a few things old Bats doesn't have and standing tall among them is a day dedicated to his celebration.

Granted, there are a few gifts the caped crusader would probably prefer to an official Batman Day (parents for one), but when you get down to it'd be hard for even the grimmest of grim superheroes to complain about people taking a day to appreciate his existence. That said, Bat-fans may want to mark their calendars because DC Comics has decided to give the beloved crime fighter just that.

As a part of the company's ongoing celebration of the character's 75th anniversary, DC Comics has declared July 23rd to be Batman Day. In turn, the publisher will be treating fans a to a variety of Bat-themed goodies that will be made available through participating comic retailers. Among the day's the collectibles will be a special ussue of Detective Comics 27 featuring a modern retelling of The Case of the Chemical Syndicate. The company will also offer a variety of other gifts including capes, and four Batman masks designed by artist Ryan Sook based on the characters' various historical iterations. In other words, if you'd fancy a chance to go strutting around the street in a Frank Miller Batman mask, be sure to visit your local comic store come July.
