Though the ‘real’ 75th Anniversary was back in March, commemorating the publication of the March, 1939 Detective Comics No. 27 and the first appearance of The Batman, DC Comics has proclaimed today, July 23, 2014 “Batman Day” to further celebrate their iconic character’s 75th year. Fans showing up at participating comics stores can get a special edition of Detective #27 with a modernized retelling of Batman’s debut story, by Brad Meltzer and Bryan Hitch. I may buy fewer and fewer comics these days as I grow increasingly weary of the publishers’ apparent mania for movie tie-ins, character crossovers and marketing gimmicks. But nothing can dilute my reverence for Bob Kane’s original creation, and it’s resurgence in the capable hands of talented people like Denny O’Neil, Neal Adams, Frank Miller and Christopher Nolan/John Nolan. I still get chills when I read retellings of young Bruce Wayne kneeling beside his murdered parents, or his very first mysterious appearances in the dark streets of Gotham City. I still choke up when I watch the very end of the first Nolan Batman film, as Lieutenant Gordon tells the about-to-leave Batman, “I never thanked you”, and the Dark Knight simply says, “And you’ll never have to,” before flying away into the dark skyscraper canyons.
So, in-authentic date or not, Happy 75th to The Batman.
Yo Pataki is a re imagining of the Hey Arnold characters as young adults. The series (hypothetically) would center around a 26 year old Helga Pataki who is now a bartender works at the family owned business, Big Bob’s Cafe.
