Back in July I shared the report that this year’s “Batman Day” was being rechristened as “Harley Quinn Day” in celebration of the characters 25th Anniversary. That day is today and if you head to your local participating comic book retailer you should be able to secure some awesome discounts and a couple of freebies but remember that for those last things it will be while supplies last.
According to some research, the free comics are as follows:
BATMAN DAY 2017 SPECIAL EDITION #1: “I Am Bane” part one! Bane is coming for Batman. Bruce must keep those he loves safe for five days in order to save Gotham Girl once and for all. But Bane will stop at nothing, and no one is safe. This features a new cover by Ryan Sook
This year, Batman Day is getting a mirthful makeover and is being rechristened as “Harley Quinn Day”. Head to your participating comic book retailers to celebrate all things Harley Quinn and to snag some discounts and freebies that honor her on her 25th Anniversary.
I’m hoping that you readers have seen some of my “Batman Day” posts by now since its been something that I have discussed for about three years now. If you don’t know what the heck I am talking about just click HERE to get a little bit of an overview of what it is and then indulge in the latest development and announcement from last weeks SDCC about this years event.
The Press Release:
In celebration of Harley Quinn’s 25th Anniversary, this year the bubbly Super-Villain will take over DC’s annual Batman Day celebration on September 23, 2017. The announcement was made today on the DC Harley Quinn: Celebrating 25 Years panel at SDCC.
