This year’s event will include a host of Batman-themed events at comic book retailers, bookstores, schools, libraries and more across the globe.
Key retail partners include Indigo, Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble and more.
To mark the occasion, fans who visit participating retailers will have the chance to pick up the first chapter of Batman: White Knight, written and drawn by Sean Murphy, a month before the collector’s edition release. The book will contain a preview of another upcoming DC Black Label comic, Batman: Damned by Brian Azzarello and Lee Bermejo. Younger Batman enthusiasts can get their hands on the first chapter of Batman: A Lot Of Li’l Gotham.
DC has given each retailer a variety of offerings, such as an online activity kit to celebrate the occasion further.
Digital readers can celebrate the masked hero with the Batman Day digital sale on Sept. 11-17. The event will offer hundreds of Batman eBooks for purchase at ReadDC.com, comiXology.com, Google Play, Amazon Kindle, Barnes & Noble Nook and iTunes. The publishing deals were made possible through DC’s partners HarperCollins, Random House Children’s Books, Penguin Random House, DK, Simon & Schuster and Scholastic.
