  • Batman's top writer talks about hero's 75th anniversary

    Batman's top writer talks about hero's 75th anniversary
    It would have been nice to get all dramatic and scratchy-voiced right now and say that Wednesday, July 23, 2014, is the 75th anniversary of Batman, and that there can be only one Dark Knight. But that would be a lie. And it wouldn't be honoring the most paranoid, skeptical superhero of all time to play along with that lie. Batman himself was once named "Bat-Man," and throughout 75 years of Bat-soap opera, everyone from his Bat-family to his Bat-enemies have worn the cape and cowl. And about that anniversary date: It's as arbitrarily concocted as Sweetest Day — even DC Comics, which declared July 23 is Batman Day, formally recognizes March 30, 1939, as his debut (i.e., the publishing date of the May 1939 issue of "Detective Comics," in which Batman first fought crime).
