On September 17, fans can take part in festivities at thousands of comic book shops, bookstores, schools and libraries across the country in honor of the Dark Knight.
According to an official statement from DC, this year's Batman Day will boast free comic book giveaways and talent signings with several major players behind Batman, including Frank Miller, Scott Snyder, Tom King, James Tynion IV, Greg Capullo, and many more that have yet to be announced.
