Batman turns 75 years young today! To commemorate this impressive milestone, DC Comics is partnering with an array of bookstores and local comic book shops and giving away FREE copies of Detective Comics #27 Special Edition.
According to the DC website, the comic in stores today is
“an updated take on the comic that first introduced Batman to the world. This extra-sized issue features stories by Brad Meltzer, Scott Snyder, Bryan Hitch and Sean Murphy, as well as Batman’s first adventure, Bob Kane and Bill Finger’s “The Case of the Chemical Syndicate,” reprinted in full. In addition, it includes a sneak peek at Meltzer and Chip Kidd’s beautiful reimagining of the original Detective Comics #27.”
But wait, there’s MORE!
