DC Commemorates 80 Years of Batman with Worldwide Fan Celebration

I recently received a lengthy announcement about some of the awesome things that will be going on in honor of the famous Caped Crusader, Batman. Read on down below.

The Press Release:
To mark the 80th anniversary of Batman, DC today unveiled plans for a global commemoration of the World’s Greatest Detective. Kicking off this March at SXSW, the multifaceted campaign for DC’s Caped Crusader will feature exclusive celebrations, special theatrical engagements, the milestone release of “Detective Comics #1000,” live events and first-ever Batman brand partnerships. As fans join together under the campaign’s tagline of #LongLiveTheBat, DC’s timeless character will be honored through Batman Day in September when the Bat-Signal lights up in major cities worldwide.

First appearing as socialite turned crime-fighter Bruce Wayne in “Detective Comics #27” on March 30, 1939, the Dark Knight has stood as a symbol of determination, bravery and justice to generations of fans for 80 years. He has influenced every area of modern entertainment, appearing in countless comic books, Saturday morning cartoons, multiple television series, video games, theme parks and experiences, toys, collectibles, apparel and lifestyle products, as well as, blockbuster animated and live-action films. There have been Batman trading cards, board games and newspaper cartoon strips, and the U.S. Postal Service has even honored Batman with his own postage stamps. Batman is a multi-billion dollar icon who continues to reign as the most popular single Super Hero ever created.

To commemorate this milestone, custom artwork was created that pays homage to Batman’s legacy in all forms of media. The Batman profile pencil design is by beloved longtime DC artist José Luis García-López, and digital paint design is by Admira Wijaya. This graphic will be featured throughout the celebration.

Last Fall, I helped to share the news about the first-ever guitar effects pedal being released by the legendary Steel Panther. It’s name was “The Pussy Melter” and if you want to recap that story please just click HERE to see what it was all about. Stick around to the end of this notice because I might just have a surprise for you regarding that pedal. Earlier today, the band announced their second pedal and I am here to share the skinny about “The Poontang Boomerang”. Dig in.

The Press Release:
California rock legends Steel Panther continue their fight for freedom of speech and their work to create a safe space for all creative expression in the music instrument world with the release of their second guitar pedal – a digital delay called the Poontang Boomerang. The pedal, which takes its name from a song on the band’s latest release Lower The Bar, is a digital delay pedal developed by Satchel in conjunction with the team who built the critically acclaimed Pussy Melter. It is made in the USA, has a toggle switch (G Day and Crikey), and 4 knobs so guitarists of all genders can customize the “Distance,” “Feedback,” “Dry” and “Wet” parameters of the tone to their individual liking.The Poontang Boomerang will retail for $199.99 and is now available for pre-order HERE

It has been brought to the band’s attention that the popular musical instrument/gear resale site has banned a musician from selling his purchased Pussy Melter on the website. The seller received an email from the Reverb Listings Standard Crew saying: “We understand what this pedal does. In this case, the imagery and the pedal itself is what we do not allow on our site.” A video discussing the whole situation can be watched below:
