75 YEARS AGO... On March 30, 1939, Illustrator Bob Kane and Writer Bill Finger created a shadowy and menacing costumed figure... Who would go on to become one of the most iconic superheroes of all time.
That superhero is none other than The Dark Knight and Caped Crusader of Gotham City himself... The Batman.
As the alter ego of Billionaire Bruce Wayne, Batman seeks to defend the innocent and deal justice to the "cowardly and superstitious". After losing his parents to a grisly crime when he was a young boy, Bruce dedicated his entire life to fight criminality and ensure others wouldn't suffer the same tragedy that befell him. Mastering an array of martial arts and sharpening his mind to become one of the keenest minds on the planet, Batman wages a one-man war on crime and uses his resources and arsenal of high-tech gadgets to aid him in his battles. He also has allies in his crusade such as Robin The Boy Wonder and Nightwing, as well as forging a strong friendship with Police Commissioner James Gordon and being a founding member of the Justice League.
To celebrate the 75th Anniversary of one of the greatest superheroes of all time, DC Comics has launched the official "Batman75.com" website to commemorate this milestone, as well as highlighting the list of new material, media, events, and merchandise that fans will be able to see throughout the year, which include the release of the new weekly comic book series "Batman: Eternal" this April, and Rocksteady Studios upcoming final entry in their highly-acclaimed Batman: Arkham video game series, Batman: Arkham Knight.
In addition to unveiling a "75th Anniversary logo", the official press release of DC Comics.com states the following:
In fact, as a BIG FAN and Cosplayer of Batman myself, here's one tribute cover designed just for the occasion.
