The number 75 might be the most relevant one when it comes to Batman Day, as it’s a celebration of the Dark Knight’s 75th anniversary in print. ComiXology isn’t stopping there though. Nope, multiply it by 10 and you’ll get the total number of Batman digital comics on sale right now for 99 cents each.
It’s true. Right now, you can grab 750 different Batman comics at Comixology for less than a buck, spanning the entire history of his war on crime in Gotham. If you’re not up to speed on what he’s faced since the New 52 relaunch, the first 20-plus issues of both Batman and Detective Comics are part of the sale.
Classic stories? For sure, almost too many to name. Batman: The Long Halloween, Batman: Dark Victory, and perhaps the most seminal Batman mini-series of all time, The Dark Knight Returns, are all 99 cents an issue. If you’re hunting famous arcs from within the regular series, you can find Year One, Knightfall, A Death in the Family, No Man’s Land, Hush, and probably more than I didn’t have time to uncover.
You’ll even find the first 25 issues of the first volume of Batman from 1940 so you can compare and contrast Bruce Wayne’s crimefighting methods back then to what he does in the present day. They’re … a little bit different.
In any case, there’s something in this particular Comixology sale for any Batman fan, and probably for any super hero fan in general. It ends at 11 pm on July 29, so check it out soon.
