DC Comics Unveils New Batman Logo for 75th Anniversary
To mark the 75th anniversary of DC Comics’ Batman, Warner Bros. Entertainment and DC Entertainment have revealed a new commemorative logo design.
The first published adventure of The Bat-Man (as he was then known) was in the May 1939 issue of Detective Comics #27, conceived of and drawn by a 22-year-old artist Bob Kane with his frequent collaborator, Bill Finger, scripting the story. The character was so successful, that one year later the first comic book devoted exclusively to the Caped Crusader’s adventures, Batman #1, hit newsstands. In that issue, Batman battled The Joker and Catwoman for the first time.
The new commemorative logo takes its cue from the famed Bat symbol, and features block-style lettering of “75 Years.” The mark will be rolled out on Batman-related promotions, products and initiatives throughout the year.
