The first thing I did when I woke up this morning was run to the window, throw open the sash, and ask a young urchin to tell me what day it was, and when he told me that it was only September 9, I rejoiced, for I had not missed Batman Day!
Of course, I have always resolved to keep Batman Day in my heart year round and honor it each and every day of my life, but that's more of a personal thing. For the official version, we can all look forward to September 26, when DC teams up with comic shops, libraries and bookstores for a celebration of the Dark Knight, including giving away free copies of Batman: Endgame Special Edition, with new covers by Jason Fabok and Jim Lee.
If you missed it, the day of the Dark Knight was July 26, and libraries all over the country commemorated the occasions with some creative, literacy-encouraging activities for kids -- and apparently at one, a bear. Random House's library marketing wing partnered with DC Comics to send event kits to libraries, and also set up a Pinterest board for photos of libraries' various celebrations. Check out some of our favorite photos.
It's pretty reasonable to believe that just about every day in comic shops around the United States, it's unofficially Batman Day. But in celebration of the character's 75th anniversary, DC Comics has made July 23 the official day to commemorate the many incarnations of the Caped Crusader.
