Good news for those with Bruce Wayne tastes but discount budgets: The celebration of Batman’s 75th anniversary continues this week with the largest digital sale ever from DC Comics.
Starting today, fans can buy 750 Batman titles for 99 cents a pop. Some of the titles included in the sale: “Batman: The Dark Knight Returns,” “Batman: The Long Halloween,” “Batman: No Man’s Land” and “Batman: Year One.”(Check out the other titles for sale in the poster to the right.)
The sale, which lasts for one week, celebrates Batman Day on July 23 as well as the weekend festivities planned for San Diego’s Comic-Con International. One of the hallmark celebrations will be “Batman: The Complete Television Series,” which will get a preview at the confab with a panel on Thursday featuring Adam West (Batman), Burt Ward (Robin) and Julie Newmar (Catwoman, meow).
The revival of the campy but beloved TV program isn’t the only fete for the DC comics superhero. Throughout the year, DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. have been celebrating the Caped Crusader with the “Batman Eternal” weekly comics series, a 25th-anniversary edition DVD of Tim Burton’s Oscar-winning 1989 “Batman” film, new animated releases and more.
To further mark Batman Day, DCE will also launch a 24-hour eBook sale, offering 10 essential Batman graphic novels for only $2.99 each.
