Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, Doo, . . . Batman!

Batman first appeared 75 years ago in Detective Comics #27:

In celebration, DC Comics has declared today, July 23, 2014, “Batman Day,” and is distributing a free “special edition” comic that includes Batman’s introduction by artist Bob Kane and writer Bill Finger, along with an update. It is available digitially, but if you will excuse me, I am off to my local comic book shop to get a hard copy . . .

Meanwhile, enjoy this sketch of the Caped Crusader by famed comic artist Howard Chaykin:

I have always preferred my Batman with long ears.
