Batman Day 2016

We had a thread for the 75th anniversary event in 2014, but I guess this is still a thing. I was going to post it in the digital thread, but thought it might be of broader interest.

DC Plans a Big Celebration for Batman Day 2016

It's September, which means DC's annual "Batman Day" event is right around the corner. Today DC Entertainment revealed its plans for this year's event, which will be held on Saturday, September 17.

All retailers participating in this year's Batman Day will be offering free copies of Batman #1 (the current DC Rebirth series). Participating retailers will include Pottery Barn Kids, Books-A-Million, Barnes & Noble and Six Flags theme parks, as well as various comic shops, schools and libraries. You can click here for the full list of participating retailers.

DC is also offering a free "Batman Activity Kit" that includes puzzles, trivia and games. The kit can be downloaded from DC's website.

Leading up to Batman Day, DC will be holding a "Road to Batman Day" sale on various Batman-themed digital comics. The sale will last from September 13-19 and cover popular Batman stories like Hush and The Dark Knight Returns. Graphic novels included in the sale will be marked down to $5.99, while single issues will be discounted 75%. On Batman Day itself, DC will also be selling the digital versions of Batman Vol. 7: Endgame and Batman Adventures Vol. 1 for $3.99 each. These sale prices will be available on all platforms where DC books are sold (the DC app, Comixology, the Kindle Store, the Nook Store, iBooks, etc).

Finally, a number of DC creators will be participating in special Batman Day signings. Frank Miller, Tom King, Scott Snyder and Greg Capullo will all be present at Midtown Comics Downtown in New York City. Snyder will also be appearing alongside John Romita, Jr. at Long island Comics. Other participating creators will include Jim Lee (Pasadena, CA), Hope Larson (Pasadena, CA), Paul Dini (Los Angeles), Julie and Shawna Benson (Los Angeles), James Tynion IV (Downtown Los Angeles, Danny Miki (Chino Hills, CA), Tim Seeley (Chicago, IL) and David Finch (Windsor, Ontario).

Re: Batman Day 2016

Weren't digital graphic novels all $2.99 a year or two ago? Not that $5.99 is a bad price...

Re: Batman Day 2016

Barnes & Noble will be participating in this event.

No idea where to put this but DC Access is running a live streaming event on YouTube all day right now:

Re: Batman Day 2016

I got Elseworlds 1, War Games 1, and Knightfall 1 in the $5.99 sale on Comixology, plus a few single issues. Knightfall seems to be the only one at that price on Amazon, and it's the only one I also have in a physical edition. I'll check back in on Saturday.

I thought every day was Batman Day (if you're Orthodox - it's Wolverine Day if you're Reformed).

Every day is Batman Day if your parents are dead enough.

Re: Batman Day 2016

Barnes & Noble is holding something for Batman Day, possibly giving away a free sampler. They've done that in the past and it usually means a table in the middle of the store has Batman items on it.
