Happy Batman Day

Posted by The Daily Zombies Wednesday, July 23, 2014

Happy 75th Birthday, Batman. To many happy returns as we check out one of the best tributes to the Dark Knight during Poster Posse's recent celebration of the occasion. 

While it is somewhat peculiar that DC Comics decided to declare today, July 23, as "Batman Day" to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the creation of the one and only Dark Knight (given the fact that the Caped Crusader made his first appearance in Detective Comics #27, cover dated May 1939),  we here at The Daily Zombies are only happy to indulge ourselves in this new holiday commemorating one of the biggest pop culture icons across the globe.

Last weekend, we checked out the incredible ensemble of artist from the Poster Posse paying their tributes to Batman in an unprecedented five-part series courtesy of Blurppy. It is interesting to note how one of the most notable pieces has somehow flew below our undead radar that we somehow missed out on featuring. Perhaps it is only appropriate to do justice to this awesome piece taking on a stellar 75 renditions of Batman by Mexico artist Salvador Anguiano. With no further ado, check out both versions of the incredible piece complete with all your favorite versions of the Dark Knight, from Lego to Zur-En-Arrh (click to view it in breathtaking hi-res).

For additional fun, here's an animated GIF of the piece.

In closing, Happy Batman Day and do remember to grab a copy of Detective Comics #27, a reproduction of the seven-page story of the original that finally credits Bill Finger on its cover (it's a long story on what appeared between Bob Kane and Bill Finger) and some of the free Batman masks.

And what better way to close off our celebration of Batman's dodranscentennial presence with a metal performance by the Batman Family fronted by none other than the Dark Knight.
