Hm. So apparently, tomorrow is Batman Day, marking 75 years since his first appearance in Detective Comics in 1939. Participating comic shops will have giveaways and promotions.

Weirdly enough, I'll be there... but only because "Conan Vs. Groo" is due out tomorrow...

I don't see why. Batman went from Arthur Conan Doyle style detective, to leather-daddy, to Muay Thai fighter. I mean, I like Batman, but he's changed genre/style so often he might as well be a catch-all for moody-broody sleuthing.

 

I say we all celebrate Conan sword-in-yer-arse day instead.

 

I just think Deadpool is mad 'cause he is Marvel and wants a Deadpool day =P

Well, Conan IS older than Batman... but he's only been a pop culture force since the seventies... when his comic book came out.

 

Kind of says something about the power of comics, doesn't it?

Went to the comic shop to pick up Groo Vs. Conan, and they were giving out freebies -- free Batman comics and four different Batman cutout masks. And nice bag!
