DC Announces Batman Day Plans, Including Exclusive ‘Endgame: Special Edition’ Covers By Jim Lee And Jason Fabok


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.

Bizarro Back Issues: Batman Battles The Scourge Of Elephant Crime (1964)

Detective Comics #333, DC Comics

Like a lot of people who started reading comics at an early age, I learned a lot of things from superheroes. Most of it was trivia, like all the Army slang that you can pick up from back issues of GI Joe --- and a lot of it was completely wrong, like that thing about only using 10% of your brain --- but comic books have always been full of weird little facts that creators decided to build entire stories around. Like, say, the time that Batman devoted his considerable resources to finally battling the most pressing scourge of 1964: Elephant Crime.

No, not crime involving elephants, like, poaching or illegal ivory smuggling. This is crime committed by elephants. And that's not the weirdest thing about this story.

Fantastic Five: Best DC Animal Sidekicks

dc animals

If there’s one thing we’ve learned from our years on the Internet, it’s that there’s no aspect of comics that can’t be broken down and quantified in a single definitive list, preferably in amounts of five or ten. And since there’s no more definitive authority than ComicsAlliance, we’re taking it upon ourselves to compile Top Five lists of everything you could ever want to know about comics.

This week we're taking a look at the trope of the animal companion, another popular trend from the Golden and Silver Ages of comics that has resulted in a number of enduring characters and concepts. If you couldn't hook kids from the newsstand with another kid in a cape and short pants, certainly a flying dog in a mask would do it. There are so many cool animals in comics that we've had to split this topic up by publisher.

Bizarro Back Issues: The Batman Superman Team-Up That Was All About Getting Defense Contracts (1994)

Batman Adventures #25, DC Comics

Last week, when DC launched a big sale on Batman Adventures, I did what I always do in that situation and told everyone to buy and read all of them immediately, because they are the best Batman comics of the '90s. But as good as they might be, there's one issue that stands out, one that rarely gets mentioned despite feeling like it ought to be a pretty big deal: Batman Adventures #25, which features the first meeting of the Animated Series Batman and Superman.

And it's also, as reader Geoff DeSouza put it when he asked me about it, "one of the best weird comics ever."
