Today is the 75 anniversary of Batman’s first comic.
Wow, Bruce. You don’t look a day over 41 (so I’ve heard)!
So the Nerdling and I went down to the local Barnes and Noble to check out their version of the Caped Crusader birthday bash.
Call me impressed. There was a story time, Bruce Wayne approved juice and cookies, trivia, prizes, bat-staches, masks, coloring sheets, buttons, temporary tattoos, bookmarks, a free comic, giant posters, and a graphic novel sized essential guide to navigating Batman’s 75 year journey.
Talk about a great gift bag for the party guests!
We also picked up a few non DC items like a full Big Nate book, a Star Wars poster, and ‘How to speak Dothraki’ (Pro-Tip, don’t say thank you) pamphlets from their Get Pop-Cultured month promo. I guess we’ll be coming to a few more of these events over the next month. Fantastic loot from this birthday plunder.
Golly, Batman. I was kidding about the plunder. It was all free, I swear!
