Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 04.29.2014

DC has announced that July 23rd will be named "Batman Day," as part of the iconic character's seventy-fifth anniversary. The company basically announced it as a comics retailer event, revealing that they are partnering with comic book retailers and bookstores across the nation for the celebration. Fans who visit participating stores on that day will receive a free special edition of Detective Comics #27 which will include a "reimagining" of the issue, in which Batman debut. The special edition is designed by Chip Kidd and written by Brad Meltzer.

In addition, the company will be providing participating retailers with other collectibles including a Batman 75th anniversary cape, bookmarks featuring essential Batman graphic novels and four Batman masks designed by comic book artist Ryan Sook. The masks include:

* Detective Comics #27: Batman's first appearance, as drawn by Bob Kane
* Batman '66: inspired by the classic TV series starring Adam West
* The Dark Knight Returns: As drawn by Frank Miller
* DC Comics The New 52: As drawn by Greg Capullo

The day will also see the debut of two new series: Robin Rises: Omega by Peter J. Tomasi and Andy Kubert and Grayson by Tim Seely and Mikel Janin.
