Batman Day? Why not? I mean, we have Donut Day, Friends Day, and Talk Like a Pirate Day, so why not Batman Day? At least Batman Day has 80 years of history behind him, right? The first appearance of Batman was in Detective Comics in 1939. Batman Day is an annual event organized by DC Entertainment to celebrate and promote Batman. The first Batman Day was July 23, 2014. The day was chosen to coincide with San Diego Comic-Con. The annual date has shifted around since then, normally hitting closer to late September. (or whenever DC comics decides to have a Batman Day).
That said, what did you guys do this weekend to celebrate? Here are some cool deals that DC put together for the day:
